Senator Capito Shares Possible Improvements to Water Infrastructure Projects

Senate bill votes 99 to one on water infrastructure bill

WEST VIRGINIA - Senator Capito says she is in favor of America's Water Infrastructure Act because she believes it improves water infrastructure all over the country. 

Those improvements include increasing water storage and maintaining inland waterways.  

Sen. Capito also hopes that the improvements will ensure clean drinking water for the eastern panhandle. 

Now that the bill has passed, she says everyone's focus should be directed at funding the future projects. 

"It will help us with systems," Capito who is also a member of the Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee said. "Water systems that have maybe been in place for a very long time need to be modernize to help our homeowners and business owners modernize their water systems."
