Manchin Announces $1 Million For Water Treatment Renovations In Calhoun County

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, announced $1,000,000 from the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) for renovations to the water treatment system in Grantsville, which serves the majority of residents in Calhoun County. The ARC grant, which will be matched by $3,168,000 in other federal and local funds for a total of $4,168,000, will be used to renovate the local water treatment plant, construct a new ground water tank and make other improvements to the county’s aging water treatment infrastructure.

“I don’t know anyone who doesn’t want clean water to drink. As our infrastructure ages, it is important to make the necessary improvements to our water treatment infrastructure so that every West Virginian has access to clean drinking water. I applaud ARC for their investment in bringing these vital resources to Calhoun County,” said Senator Manchin. “As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I look forward to working with ARC and other organizations in the future to bring investments like these to our state.”
