Which stream looks healthier to you? The answer is clear. Without a streamside buffer, heavy rainfall can erode streambanks and cause pollution to run off into waterways.

Streamside buffers stabilize banks and filter out pollution, resulting in cleaner water and healthier land.

City of Philadelphia Announces Large-Scale Capital Investment Through PENNVEST

Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PENNVEST) Board of Directors has approved a funding offer for more than $73 million to the City of Philadelphia for the rehabilitation of the Torresdale Filtered Water Pump Station - the largest drinking water pumping station in the City. The offer is part of PENNVEST’s Drinking Water State Revolving Fund program and is the third largest award ever by the infrastructure funding organization.
The Torresdale Pump Station has been in continuous operation since its original construction in 1946, making prior rehabilitation difficult. This comprehensive overhaul will include the installation of 14 new state-of-the-art pumps, flow meters, and electrical equipment that will ensure efficiency and reliability in the delivery of drinking water. While the reconstruction project will result in direct health and safety benefits to water customers, the project will also support some of the City’s most critical infrastructure, including Jefferson and the University of Pennsylvania Hospitals, critical care facilities through the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Pennsylvania has some of the oldest infrastructure in our nation,” said Eric Menzer, Chairman of the PENNVEST Board of Directors. “The City of Philadelphia continues to take steps to ensure that residents and Pennsylvanians who work and play in the City are guaranteed reliable access to clean water. Not only is clean water access critical to the continued success of any community, but it is more essential as we confront this ongoing global pandemic.”

“We are deeply committed to the safety and integrity of our water system and will continue to make these strategic investments to our infrastructure. We are pleased to work with partners like PENNVEST on projects that will improve access to clean water for our residents and business,” said Randy E. Hayman, Commissioner of the Philadelphia Water Department.

Since its inception in 1988, PENNVEST has funding nearly 30 clean water projects throughout the City of Philadelphia, providing over $370 million in grant and low-interest loan funding.

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.
