English Announces Half-Million Gaming Grant for Hampton Watershed Project
HAMPTON TWP. – A grant totaling a half-million dollars will help Hampton Township improve its sewer system and better serve its customers, Rep. Hal English (R-Allegheny) announced today.

Identifying future community needs, English worked with Hampton Township officials to obtain funding for its future sewage treatment facility upgrades.

The $500,000 grant from the Gaming Economic Development Fund will specifically assist the township with its Glannon Watershed Improvement Project. The grant, which was approved in 2017, will offset the cost of the Pennsylvania Sewage Facilities Act 537 Plan and associated rate study.

“I was happy to assist in obtaining this grant for precious front-end dollars to properly analyze the scope of the sewer system needs or upgrades as well as environmental requirements,” English said.

Funds will also be applied to the $1.2 million cost of sewer lining to reduce infiltration and inflow at the Glannon pump station.

“I’d like to thank state Sen. Randy Vulakovich for working with us on this grant funding,” English added. “This cooperation was critical in acquiring this funding to ensure the well-being of residents and wildlife alike.”

These grants are administered by the Redevelopment Authority of Allegheny County (RAAC). They are intended to provide financial assistance to entities to facilitate economic development projects in Allegheny County.
