Last week, Schuylkill Haven Borough settled on $390,763 in principal forgiveness loan funding through PENNVEST to replace over 50 existing lead service lines in older sections of the Borough that have been documented to have lead lines. This project will include new valves, curb stops, and other appurtenances. This project will also significantly reduce unaccounted for water loss in the drinking water distribution system. These improvements will enhance Schuylkill Haven Borough’s ability to operate and maintain its entire drinking water system. The funding comes through the Water Infrastructure Funding Transfer Act (WIFTA) signed by Congress in 2019 and administered through the PENNVEST State Revolving Fund. This project is the first of a number of PENNVEST lead line replacement projects funded through WFITA to go to settlement.

Last month went to our township's meeting regarding our very very high sewer bill. This is in Berks county and the township is in high debt from prior yrs. I am paying 345.29 per qtr for sewer. My water is separate. So, can Penn Vest help maybe with a new lower loan and longer time for my township. New resident, new home and we are paying for past yrs mess. I also wrote to Attorney General's office and did get a reply back. They cannot help, so just searching for a fix as a concerned citizen and homeowner.
