Pennsylvania has already received $93 million of $220 million in stimulus funds slated for state water projects. About $155 million of the funds will go toward wastewater projects, and $65 million will be tapped for drinking water projects. The funds, when matched and leveraged, will give the state about $1 billion for water projects this year. The money will allow Pennsylvania "to address some of the most pressing problems where failing systems are threatening public health and safety and driving away opportunities for economic growth and investment," Gov. Ed Rendell said.
