Washington, DC – Today, Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-06) announced $1,036,717 in Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) funding to Bayshore Regional Sewerage Authority (BRSA) to repair Superstorm Sandy damage to three of their facilities: the Main Pump Station, the MaintenanceBuilding, and the Grit Facility.
“Sandy severely damaged critical components of infrastructure at BRSA, and this grant will help make very important repairs affecting the Bayshore’s sewerage system, including disinfecting parts of the facilities, fixing and replacing pumps, other machinery and electric circuits,” said Pallone. “While this grant represents only a portion of the cost that BRSA incurred from the storm, I will continue to work to see that they receive the funds they need.”
BRSA serves Hazlet, UnionBeach, Holmdel, Aberdeen, Keansburg, Keyport, Matawan and parts of Marlboro. BRSA suffered extensive flooding as a result of Sandy causing damages of $20 million. This grant to BRSA is awarded in addition to a $2.4 million FEMA grant announced in February of this year to repair damage done to the raw sewage main pump station.
