Pennsylvania’s struggling capital, Harrisburg, has received state funding toward two local infrastructure projects, state Sen. Rob Teplitz announced Tuesday.
The Harrisburg Authority public works agency received a $26 million low-interest loan, administered by the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority of Pennvest, toward upgrading the city’s wastewater treatment facility. The improvements will bring the plant’s ammonia and nutrient reduction requirements into compliance with the U.S. Department of Environmental Protection. This $53 million project will also receive $26.7 million in outside financing and a $973,000 H20 PA grant.
