FILTER MEDIA UPGRADE
CHJA was awarded $400,000 from an application submitted by Connor Lamb through Community Project Funding Fiscal Year 2022. This project is the continuation of water quality in the removal of iron and manganese from the supply using sand and gravel in the filtration system. This technology is at the best cost with very high efficiency in these elements’ removal. The filters are dependent on the sand and gravel to maintain the water quality and purification process.
WATERLINE REPLACEMENT PROJECT
One of the CHJA highest priority capital projects is replacing water mains throughout multiple locations in its service area due to the concern over high vulnerability. Approximately 3,526 linear feet of water line will be replaced along with fittings and restoration of the areas affected by construction.

CHJA SECURITY PROJECT
Motion security cameras will be installed at ten sites throughout the system including the wells, tank sites, and main office building. This will ensure the security of the sites with 24-hour monitoring. Motion security cameras are the most cost effective way to detect suspicious activities along with deterring criminal activities.
This project allows for the Authority to continue operation during extended power outages and insure an adequate water supply for both residential and commercial use as well as fire fighting. $300,000.00 was funded by PA Small Water and Sewer Program.
STORAGE TANK MIXERS
A grant of $67,000.00 was received from the PA Small Water and Sewer program to install storage tank mixers at its tank sites. Mixing maintains water quality, and eliminates temperature stratification.
DISINFECTION SYSTEM IMPROVEMENT
The project eliminated a buried 50+ year old 4000-gallon chlorine contact tank (CCT) due to concern over its vulnerability and replace it with a new CCT facility.
