A $2.6 million, 20-year loan from PennVest, the state's Infrastructure Investment Authority, will enable the Burgettstown-Smith Joint Sewer Authority to lay sanitary sewer lines to protect a Washington County waterway from sewage contamination.

The state Department of Environmental Protection says more than half of on-lot sewer systems in a section of Smith Township are malfunctioning and endangering Plum Run.

Using the money approved Thursday, the authority plans to install more than a mile of line to replace those on-lot systems and prevent runoff. That would add nearly 100 ratepayers to the system.
