Capito, Manchin Announce More Than $1.7 Million for Water and Wastewater Infrastructure in West Virginia

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 $1,780,000 from the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) for improvements in water and wastewater infrastructure in McDowell and Clay Counties. This funding will be used for sanitary sewer improvements and the replacement of two water storage tanks.

“From highways to water pipes, modern infrastructure is essential,” Senator Capito said. “As chairman of the Committee on Environment and Public Works’ Subcommittee on Transportation and Infrastructure, I am working every day to strengthen agencies and programs like the Appalachian Regional Commission that support infrastructure investments in West Virginia.  I am thrilled to see this funding come to West Virginia, and I will continue to use my positions as a leader on the Committee on Environment and Public Works and the Committee on Appropriations to support modern, dependable infrastructure for West Virginians.”

“Investing in infrastructure is essential to improving the lives of all residents across West Virginia. These investments will help expand drinking water containment and wastewater treatment systems so that all West Virginians have access to clean water and sanitation, no matter where they live. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I will continue to fight for West Virginians to receive the services they need and deserve,” said Senator Manchin.
