The Quemahoning Pipeline is a $23.5 million project that will have a significant, positive, impact on the future of Somerset County. This new infrastructure will assist greatly in attracting new businesses to the County, supporting new and expanding residential areas, and providing for the health and welfare of our residents.
The stable water supply it provides will be an attractive asset to businesses who are considering locating here. There are very few counties, if any, in Pennsylvania that can offer such a vast supply of water.
Municipalities along the pipeline will be able to provide an improved quality of life for both their residents and the employees of the businesses located within their boundaries. They will deliver a safe, reliable source of water which is free of pollutants and contaminants. Long-term drought relief will be provided by the project’s abundant water supply, allowing customers to endure fewer usage restrictions. The infrastructure will be expanded as communities and business require, as we are always looking to the future.
Fire hydrants along the pipeline will be well supplied and will eliminate the need to truck water from other sources during public safety emergencies, greatly improving fire protection for the County’s residents.
The long-term, residual effects of this project may take years, or perhaps even generations, to realize.
