TOWANDA, Pa. (WETM) – A $2.2 million state investment has been allocated to the Towanda Borough Municipal Authority for the Monroe Borough Water Line Replacement Project.
The investment was announced by State Senator Gene Yaw (R-23) and Rep. Tina Pickett.
The Monroe Borough section of the authority’s water system was installed in the early 1900s and consists of lead-containing materials. The state grant will enable the authority to remove approximately 7,600 feet of existing 10-inch and 6-inch diameter lead-containing cast iron pipe and associated service connections, and replace them with 10-inch and 8-inch diameter ductile iron pipe and modern, lead-free service connections and laterals.
