Philadelphia – August 18, 2020 – Sen. Anthony H. Williams (D- Philadelphia/Delaware) announced today that $1,301,824 in state grant funding have been awarded to local waterway and sewer improvement projects in Delaware County.
“I am very pleased that these grants have been awarded to infrastructure projects throughout our community.
