$5 Million to go to WV water & wastewater infrastructure
WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Senators Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) today announced $5,000,000 in infrastructure funding through the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ (USACE) Section 340 environmental infrastructure program.
Through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, this funding will be used to help provide reliable water and sewer service.
“These investments are another great example of West Virginia reaping the benefits of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. Southern West Virginia in particular struggles with inadequate water and wastewater infrastructure, which is why the Section 340 program was created to provide dedicated assistance to this region of our state. The funding announced will help ensure more than 6,000 West Virginians receive access to reliable, affordable, safe, and clean water and wastewater,” Senator Capito said.
