HARRISBURG, PA, Nov. 17, 2004 (PRNewswire) -- Pennvest's Board of Directors today approved $97.3 million in low-interest loans and $4.9 million in grants to fund 39 brownfield remediation, acid mine drainage, drinking water, wastewater and storm water projects in 26 counties across the Commonwealth. The grants were targeted at seven prohibitively expensive projects to bring them within the financial reach of their customers.

The funding ranges from $45,000 to eliminate wastewater discharges from septic systems in a mobile home park in McKean County, to $17,500,000 to replace an existing wastewater treatment plant and eliminate wet weather discharges of inadequately treated waste into Stony Creek, in Cambria County.

The funding for today's projects brings Pennvest's total funding for community water, sewer and storm water projects to more than $3.6 billion since the program's inception.
