EXTON, PA − September 18, 2019 – State Rep. Danielle Friel Otten and state Sen. Katie Muth today announced that a $32,610 Commonwealth Financing Authority grant will be awarded to Upper Uwchlan Township’s Sewage Facilities Program.

Upper Uwchlan Township is looking to update its sewage plan in accordance with Act 537 and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection. The revised plan will address the planning requirements necessary to meet future sanitary sewer service needs not currently served by the central Route 100 Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant. The total project cost is $65,220.

“I’m thankful that we could bring these funds back to the 155th,” Otten said. “This grant will allow Upper Uwchlan Township to determine the most efficient and best practices for providing future public sewer services to its residents while effectively maintaining existing sewage facilities.”

“It is important to support projects that will improve services for current and future residents,” Muth said. “The funding awarded today serves to update and advance current sewer operations in Upper Uwchlan, allowing for future operational expansion to address the needs of those living in the township.”
