Washington, DC- Today, U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) announced that the Economic Development Administration’s (EDA) Economic Development Assistance Program has approved a $3 million investment towards the construction of a wastewater treatment plant in Findlay Township. The EDA previously approved $1.8 million last year for the Findlay Township Waterline Project at Casey’s urging. By providing sufficient water capacity to serve existing businesses, this project will work to accommodate new commercial and industrial development and job creation in the region.
“I’m pleased that the EDA has decided to invest in support of the economic growth of Findlay Township and the surrounding region,” Senator Casey said. “This funding is estimated to create 2,400 more jobs and attract private investment to support further development in Allegheny County and neighboring Beaver County. The infrastructure projects stemming from these investments will have a lasting impact on the region’s economy and help modernize the airport corridor.”
