The West Virginia Infrastructure and Jobs Development Council announced funding for five sewer and two water system improvement projects at its meeting on Aug. 3.
The council approved a $925,000 grant to the Town of Clay in Clay County to improve its sewer system. These funds, along with money from the Disaster Recovery Community Development Block Grant Program and Clean Water State Revolving Fund, provide $7.09 million for the project.
The council also approved technical reviews and requests to pursue funding for an additional 27 sewer and water projects, which help cities, municipalities and public service districts around the state save taxpayer money and keep their water and sewer projects moving. The projects found to be technically feasible and approved to pursue funding are listed below.
