Manchin Announces More Than $35 Million to Upgrade West Virginia Water, Wastewater Infrastructure

Washington, DC — Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, announced $35,169,000 to upgrade water, wastewater and storm water infrastructure across West Virginia. The funding is made possible through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Clean Water State Revolving Fund.

“Every West Virginian deserves clean water to drink and fresh air to breathe. I fought to include funding in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to deliver critical resources to communities like West Virginia, and I am pleased the EPA is investing more than $35 million in promoting access to clean drinking water across the state,” Senator Manchin said. “The funding announced today will also upgrade and improve wastewater and stormwater infrastructure throughout West Virginia, and I look forward to seeing the positive impacts of the investments for years to come. As Chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee and as a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I will continue advocating for resources to protect the health and wellbeing of communities across the Mountain State.”
