Rahall Announces USDA Project Funding for Lincoln County Water Infrastructure

From Press Release
BECKLEY, W.Va. – U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall (D-W.Va.) Tuesday announced $1.1 million in USDA Rural Development funding to extend clean water services in Lincoln County.


“This funding, in addition to previous funding that I have supported and announced for the Lower Mud River Project, will help ensure that Lincoln County households have safe and reliable drinking water when families turn on the faucet.  I have waged many budget battles in Washington to ensure that Federal funding is available to southern West Virginia communities in order to build and strengthen our water and sewer systems, and I will never let up in that fight,” said Rahall. 


This USDA Rural Development grant announced by Rahall completes a multi-million dollar financial package for the Lincoln County project.   That package of funding includes monies from the Army Corp of Engineers Section 340 Southern West Virginia Infrastructure Program, which Rahall helped to create in 1992, to provide residents across southern West Virginia with modern water and wastewater systems.


The Project will serve an additional 81 families in the Lower Mud River area.
