HARRISBURG- Some state money is coming to Northumberland County to upgrade a sewer system. Governor Tom Wolf recently announced state money for water infrastructure projects in the commonwealth. One of those projects is in Upper Augusta Township to install a sanitary sewer system and extension line in the village of Mount Pleasant.
The project will eliminate 46 septic tanks and eliminate the use of a non-compliant wastewater plant. The township received a $250,000 loan and a grant of almost three million dollars. The governor says the money will come through PENNVEST and invest $98 million for 16 sites to improve drinking water and storm water projects.
