MANCHIN, CAPITO ANNOUNCE $30K FOR SAFE DRINKING WATER IN SOUTHERN WEST VIRGINIA
Washington D.C. – U.S. Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), members of the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced $30,000 from the Environmental Protect Agency (EPA) for the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection to ensure the safety of our drinking water. This funding will help protect underground water sources from waste and pollutants in southern West Virginia.
“Clean water and fresh air for West Virginians has always been a top priority of mine. By protecting our underground water sources, we are able to take steps forward in ensuring that all West Virginians have access to clean drinking water. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I will continue to fight for funding that ensures the safety of West Virginians and protects our resources,” said Senator Manchin.
“Throughout my time in Congress, I have worked to ensure that every West Virginian has access to safe drinking water,” said Senator Capito. “Whether through investments in infrastructure or funding for monitoring programs like in this announcement, I will continue to fight for resources that provide this basic service to West Virginians.”
