MONTROSE – Rep. Jonathan Fritz (R-Susquehanna/Wayne), along with Sen. Gene Yaw (R- Bradford/Lycoming/Sullivan/Susquehanna/Union) announced Bridgewater Township Municipal Authority received funds from the Pennsylvania Small Water and Sewer Program.
“I am pleased to announce this great news as I know this was important to the authority and the residents that stand to benefit from these resources designated to repair pumps,” said Fritz. “I’d like to thank those administering the program and made it possible for us to get these state funds for our area.”
“I was happy to support this project,” said Yaw. “Ensuring our communities are equipped to properly handle wastewater is good for our citizens and good for our environment.”
