Corbin Secures Grant for West Brandywine Township
9/18/2018
HARRISBURG – Representative Becky Corbin (R-East Brandywine) today announced the release of a $309,217 grant to West Brandywine Township Municipal Authority to help fund upgrades to the Ashberry Pump Station.

Corbin advocated for the funding through the state’s Commonwealth Financing Authority’s Small Water and Sewer Program. The Pennsylvania Small Water and Sewer Program offers grants for small water and sewer infrastructure projects and can be used to assist with the construction, improvement, expansion, or rehabilitation or repair of a water supply or sanitary sewer system.

“Chester County is a growing area and many times our resources can become overextended quickly,” Corbin said. “This pump station was constructed 16 years ago, but capacity has already been outstretched. By making upgrades to this pump station, we can avoid costlier repairs and needs later. I am pleased to have been able to assist with this worthy project.”

The pump station serves the Ashberry Lane and Monacy Manor developments and properties along Reeceville Road. Wastewater flow now far exceeds the pump station’s capacity, causing excessive wear on the pumps and grinder. This grant will be used to convert the pump station from above ground self-priming pumps to submersible grinder pumps. In addition, a new trash basket will be installed into the wet well to collect large debris, such as rags and wipes. Finally, a new smaller diameter force main will be installed so pump capacity can be reduced to be more in line with actual wastewater flow.

The 155th District consists of the following municipalities: West Brandywine, East Brandywine, Uwchlan, Upper Uwchlan, West Vincent, East Pikeland, Spring City, and part of Phoenixville.
