Challenges abound for drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure owners. Some of today’s most pressing issues include how to:

  • Leverage Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) funding.
  • Manage PFAS in your water supply.
  • Comply with air quality regulations issued by the U.S. EPA.

At Gannett Fleming, we’re helping clients tackle issues like these each and every day from our more than 60 offices across North America, including seven in Pennsylvania. Our team of water industry experts is set to share exactly how we’re doing it at the Pennsylvania Municipal Authorities Association (PMAA) Annual Conference in Erie this month. Join us for discussions on these timely topics or reach out to our speakers directly to start a conversation.

We hope to see you at PMAA!

Hear about the Greater Hazleton Joint Sewer Authority’s (GHJSA) new 15-dry-ton-per-day Fluidized Bed Sewage Sludge Incinerator that became operational in June 2020. It is one of only a few sewage sludge incinerators in the entire country built to follow the U.S. EPA’s subpart LLLL air quality regulations. GHJSA and Gannett Fleming professionals will share how the authority leveraged incineration as a solution to several issues and provide an overview of the new incinerator process and components, its unique aspects, lessons learned, project funding, and resulting project benefits.

There is an overwhelming number of components to the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and the federal funds available within this historic investment. All target different infrastructure areas and are provided through different avenues.

This presentation breaks down the components related to water, wastewater, and stormwater, including some of the more obscure opportunities, and provides details on who is administering the funding, who is eligible, priorities of the funding, types of funding (grant/loan), and status. Advice and guidance on preparing to apply for and receive funds, and information on other timely funding opportunities for systems is also included.

Although relatively new from a drinking water regulatory standpoint, PFAS have been discussed extensively in the general news media and in municipal and water industry circles. PFAS regulations will continue to evolve, treatment technologies will improve, and funding opportunities may arise quickly. Preparing for regulatory changes and funding opportunities is critical to the long-term success of municipal water systems. This presentation is focused on preparing for the evolving PFAS regulatory landscape and potential funding opportunities that support PFAS compliance efforts.
