PennVEST awarded $36,620,000 in low-interest loan funding to the Altoona Water Authority for the Biosolids Treatment Improvements at the Westerly Wastewater Treatment Facility. This was PennVEST’s first funding award to a Guaranteed Energy Savings (GESA) Project in its 30+ year program history. Energy Services Group (ESG) is constructing this GESA project under a Design-Build Agreement with Altoona Water Authority (AWA), and Bassett Engineering is providing engineering services including permitting and funding assistance to ESG. Britt Bassett worked closely with AWA’s Controller and Director of Wastewater Operations along with ESG on all aspects of the PENNVEST application from initial submission through the review process and final award. This is a critical step in the project timeline.
