Capito, Manchin Announce $713,000 for Rural Water Infrastructure

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), members of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced $713,000 from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) for the Norton Harding Jimtown Public Service District and the Tyler County Public Service District to repair and replace water infrastructure.
 
“Whether it is broadband or a water line, dependable infrastructure is essential for providing basic services to West Virginians,” Senator Capito said. “As chairman of the Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee on the Environment and Public Works Committee, I have the opportunity to play a critical role in advancing legislation that builds highways, repairs dams, and improves water and wastewater services for West Virginians. I am thrilled to see this funding come to Randolph and Tucker counties, and I will continue to fight for infrastructure investments for West Virginia.”
 
“As West Virginia’s infrastructure ages, it is important to continuously develop and invest in our drinking water and wastewater systems so that West Virginians’ drinking water can be as clean as possible and new technologies can support efficient delivery. This funding will ensure that West Virginians have access to clean drinking water in their communities. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I will continue to fight for investments in West Virginia’s infrastructure to ensure that West Virginians have access to clean drinking water around our state,” Senator Manchin said. 
 
Individual awards are listed below:

  • $250,000– Norton Harding Jimtown Public Service District
