CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Two water projects in southern West Virginia are getting financial help from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall says the corps awarded $520,000 to the Logan County Public Service District to replace a failing water system. The system serves about 170 residential and small commercial customers in the Bud and Alpoca areas of Wyoming County.
Rahall says the corps also awarded $607,000 to the McDowell County Public Service District to extend water service to more than 500 customers in the Big Sandy and Roderfield areas.
The funding comes from the corps' Section 340 Environmental Assistance Program.
