Bridge Grant Application

Pa. Act 13, the shale gas impact fee legislation, provides the Potter County Commissioners $40,000 annually in restricted-use funds to assist local municipalities for repairing or replacing bridges.  In order to distribute it fairly and equally, the Board of Commissioners decided that municipalities should submit an application, which will be reviewed by a committee consisting of the three Commissioners and representatives of Municipal Governments of Potter County.  Specific criteria have been established to evaluate each application.

Municipal Resource Booklet

In 2017, Potter County partnered with U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Potter County Conservation District, Potter County Planning and the Pa. Dept. of Environmental Protection (DEP), to sample 47 randomly selected drinking water wells to assess the ground water across the entire county. This opportunity came as Potter County received Pa. Dept. of Community and Economic Development (DCED) Grant funds which allowed us to take advantage of an opportunity to understand what is native to our water sources and to assess the impacts land use practices have had on our ground water. The link below can provide more details to the project and its results as they are available.
