HARRISBURG PA – Four western Montgomery County municipalities have won more than $4.1 million under separate state and county grant programs to address pressing infrastructure needs. The funds will help replace water service lines in Pottstown, install pedestrian safety equipment in Royersford, replace a traffic signal in Schwenksville, and upgrade an on-road trail in Upper Providence.
The state grant awards were announced Wednesday (Oct. 20, 2021) by Gov. Tom Wolf, and the county awards Friday (Oct. 22) by the Board of Commissioners.
The biggest winner among the four is the Pottstown Borough Authority, which is scheduled to receive a $3,709,992 grant for its 2021 Lead Service Replacement Project. It intends to replace about 700 aging water service lines and other plumbing items constructed of lead with modern piping, in an effort to eliminate public exposure to lead materials.
