On Tuesday, March 21st
, the Lancaster County Commissioners presented a check in the amount of $1,000,000 to Paradise Township through American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding for Water, Sewer and Stormwater projects. Paradise Township’s project, along with funding for 14 other community-based projects, was unanimously approved by the Board of Commissioners at the December 21st
meeting of 2022.
The $1,000,000 award will assist Paradise Township in upgrading their sewer plant. The funding will allow Paradise Township to nearly double their flow rates from 120,000 gallons to 220,000 per day. By undertaking this project, the municipality will account for anticipated growth over the next 20 – 30 years and will address the need for any major replacements in that timespan.
