In 2020, MATSF expended $428,058 for rehabilitation work on various sewers segments in the vicinity of Portman Run. The key aspects of the work included approximately 9,400 feet of manhole to manhole pipe lining and lining or grouting of the public portion of 38 laterals. This work was performed to eliminate groundwater infiltration and root penetration within certain portions of those sewer segments. In 2021, MATSF filed a grant application with ALCOSAN as part of the sixth round of their “GROW” grant program (Green Revitalization of Our Waterways Program). Subsequently, ALCOSAN offered a grant in the amount of $93,200 and the agreement documents were executed on November 1, 2021. Upon completion of a final project report, the grant funds are anticipated to be received during the first quarter of 2022.
This is the second “GROW” grant awarded to MATSF. The first grant in the amount of $35,800 was for sewer rehabilitation work performed in 2017 on the upper portion of the Millers Run Trunk Sewer. That grant was awarded in 2019.
