U.S. Rep. Stephen F. Lynch recently announced that the federal government’s FY22 appropriations bill includes funding to replace the sewer pumping station at Pemberton Point.
The government funding package signed by President Joseph R. Biden provides $2,000,000 to replace Pump Station No. 9 in the parking lot across Main Street from Hull High School.
“I am very pleased the funding to replace the Town of Hull’s Pump Station 9 was included in the final appropriations package,” Lynch said. ”This pump station is part of a facility that treats wastewater and has reached the end of its service life. Its replacement will help Hull meet facility codes, address climate change and maintain its resiliency efforts, which is critical for a coastal community.”
Lynch said Hull’s project was funded in the Interior and Environment bill of the appropriations package, which provides $1.5 trillion to help support American families, protect national security and strengthen public health.
The Congressman said the funding package invests in creating jobs, funding benefits for veterans and expanding affordable housing for seniors and people with disabilities. It also strengthens biomedical research through increased funding for the National Institutes of Health, invests in clean energy technology, and supports underserved small businesses.
“My thanks to Town Manager Phil Lemnios and Director of Wastewater Operations John Struzziery for their hard work and dedication to get Hull the necessary funding to continue their sewer rehabilitation efforts,” Lynch said. “I am also thankful for the support of Senators Elizabeth Warren and Ed Markey and all their work in the Senate.”
