YEADON, July 14, 2009 — State Sen. Anthony H. Williams announced today that a local municipality received state funding for a water improvement project.

Darby Borough received $50,000 for the rehabilitation of 2,500 linear feet of sanitary sewer pipe located along Sixth Street, Greenway Avenue, and Walnut Street in Darby Borough, Delaware County.

“We don’t often think about our sewer systems; we simply expect them to work. That’s why it’s so important that we continue to maintain and upgrade the systems that keep water flowing as it should,” Williams said. “I’m pleased that this state funding will be used wisely to help Darby Borough run smoothly.”

The funding is part of the H20 PA Act, a state program designed to assist municipalities and authorities in paying for repairs to their water, sewer, and flood control systems. The Act is funded with revenue from the Pennsylvania Gaming Economic Development and Tourism Fund.
