Buffalo, NY— Following completion of a significant construction project partnering with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the City of Parma has again entered into an agreement with the Corps of Engineers for continued wastewater improvements to address failing residential septic systems.
The City of Parma completed the Broadrock Court Sanitary Relief Sewer Connection project in November 2018 with close to half the design and construction funding from the Water Resources and Development Act of 1999 (Public Law 106-53), Section 594 program, administered by the Corps of Engineers. The latest agreement includes approximately $1M in funding for improvements to the nearby Brookdale Avenue and Broadview Road areas of the City, where more than 1,000 feet of 8-inch sewer will be constructed. Once completed, additional residences can be connected to the NEOSRD sanitary sewer system, allowing the failing septic systems to be abandoned.
"As an early supporter of this federal investment in the City of Parma, I am very pleased to see these additional critical wastewater improvements," said Representative Marcy Kaptur. "Thanks to the new agreement between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the City of Parma, the project supports additional sewer lines and will help ensure that area water quality meets the highest standards possible."
