Grant Targets Runoff Pollution from Round Hill Park in Elizabeth Township

A $40,000 grant has been approved for the Allegheny County Conservation District to reduce pollution runoff from Round Hill Park in Elizabeth Township, according to state Sen. Jim Brewster.

“Reducing pollution runoff requires focus and resources,” Brewster said.  “The grant to fund work at Round Hill Park will improve the environment and eliminate pollutants that get into our water systems.”

Brewster said the funds are made available from a legal settlement with Sunoco related to the Mariner East 2 pipeline project.  There were 61 projects approved to receive a piece of the $12.6 million settlement. 

The Sunoco settlement funds were awarded not only for pollution abatement, but also for invasive species removal, reforestation, farm runoff and other projects designed to address water quality. 

Brewster said he would continue to seek funds for other critical environmental projects in the region.
