USDA Invests $14 Million in Infrastructure Project for People in Rural Wayne County


Published:
03/16/2022


United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) State Director of Rural Development Bob Morgan today announced that the Department is investing $14 million in rural Wayne County, PA.

The South Wayne County Water and Sewer Authority will receive a Water and Waste Disposal Loan and Grant of $14,879,000 to upgrade their wastewater treatment plant for the public sewer system. The plant currently serves residential communities in Salem and Lake Townships, PA. The plant, over 40 years old, has reached the end of its useful life.

"An investment in infrastructure of this magnitude will directly impact the lives of rural Americans in Pennsylvania," said Morgan. "President Biden has laid out a roadmap for building a better America, and this project is another milestone in that plan. With the 'build a better America' agenda, USDA will fund more critical projects in Pennsylvania."

Since 2020, USDA Rural Development has invested $28 million in Wayne County through over 40 programs, with over $103 million obligated in Pennsylvania's 8th Congressional District.

"Upgrading our aging infrastructure is a top priority for bolstering opportunity and prosperity," said Rep. Matt Cartwright, a member of the House Appropriations Committee. "I'm a strong advocate for programs like this, working to ensure our communities are attractive, safe places to live, work, and play."

The project will receive additional funding of a $3,879,000 loan and a $539,000 grant, following a $10 million loan and grant combination obligated in 2019.

Planning for the project began in 2003, and the Authority is pleased to see it come to fruition.

"We're very excited to have received the grant and low-interest loans for our facility upgrades," said Jack Lennox, executive director for Roamingwood Sewer and Water, agent of the South Wayne County Water and Sewer Authority. "Our communities will have one of the most state-of-the-art facilities in the country along with brand-new infrastructure."

Background:

Under the Biden-Harris Administration, Rural Development provides loans and grants to expand economic opportunities, create jobs, and improve the quality of life in rural areas. This assistance supports infrastructure improvements, business development, housing, and community facilities. For more information, visit www.rd.usda.gov.

USDA plays a vital role in the lives of Americans by transforming the food system, ensuring access to healthy food, making investments in rural infrastructure and clean energy, and promoting equity across the Department. Learn more at www.usda.gov.

ATTENTION: Only RS&W Staff is Permitted to Operate Water Curb Stop & Valves

ATTENTION:

Dear Customers,

It has come to our attention that several properties have been found to have hired private contractors to physically turn their water on/off at the curb stop. To avoid a fine, it is required that any Water ON or OFF must be scheduled through and performed by an RS&W technician. Please contact our office to make an appointment. The scheduled fee is only $20.00 for each service. Any customer or contractor found to be blatantly disregarding this policy, will be subject to fines and/or legal proceedings.

The following clause from our Rules & Regulations handbook is being provided to you so that you know the potential penalty to the homeowner and contractor:

CURB BOXES AND VALVES

C7. No unauthorized persons shall exercise any of Roamingwood’s water or sewer facilities, including curb stops, valves, vent pipes, etc., in any public or private line. It is the responsibility of the property owner to advise all contractors to contact Roamingwood to have valves opened or closed. Non-compliance will result in a fine assessed to the property owner of five hundred dollars ($500.00) per occurrence and could result in legal prosecution. The purpose of this prohibition and directive is to eliminate liability and avoid the
associated costs that Roamingwood incurs due to potential damage of our equipment and to avoid any health and safety issues that can occur from improper handling of the same.

Roamingwood Sewer and Water Association is requesting the assistance of Property Owners of the Hideout
Community in complying with our Rules and Regulations when contracting services.

Should tampering with the Water & Sewer Curb Boxes and Valves continue we will have no choice but to levy further fines on the homeowner as well as seek legal prosecution for illegal tampering of our facilities.

Sincerely,
RS&W

Testimonials

To whom it may concern:

Especially the woman who called me: I am a new resident of the hideout ! I closed on June 4 th 2021 At this time I would like to thank one of your workers and any one else involved who called me on or about 15 or 16 of June to let me know a worker noticed an unusual large am't of water being used contentiously !! I then noted to the person that I was not at the residence and out of state. I then asked her to shut the water off at the curb until I got back. When I got back I found out that the hot water tank broke. I replaced the tank and had to have remediation done and repair some damages ! The reason why I am telling you this if it were not for the person checking the meter and saw my problem. And notified me. To shut my water. It would have leaked for another day or two until I got back!! Then there would have been much more extensive damage.

Therefore I am extending my thanks and gratitude to the person or persons who noted the problem ! Be assured that I feel that the personal who works at RWSW are doing a good job. Please let everyone know.

Thanking you again for the concern you had shown in this Matter!
