MEDIA – Rep. Chris Quinn (R-Delaware), on Tuesday, announced that Edgmont Township received a grant from the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) through the Watershed Restoration and Protection Program.

Edgmont will receive $50,656 for the installation, operation, maintenance, and engineering costs for Best Management Practices (BMPs) to meet state requirements. In compliance with the Clean Water Act and the Pennsylvania Clean Streams Law, Edgmont Township is required to reduce the pollutant load of its watersheds by 10 percent by 2023.

Edgmont’s project includes the installation of a bioswale and rain garden enhancements at the Edgmont Township Park and 30 inlet sediment filter bags along Valley and Sackhouse Mill Roads.

“With this grant, we are ensuring a safer and more environmentally friendly community for years to come,” said Quinn. “I am pleased to support this funding and to continue improving our watershed quality.”

This grant was awarded by the CFA through the Watershed Restoration Protection Program for projects focused on restoring bodies of water impaired by uncontrolled discharge and improving water quality.
