EPA approves West Virginia water improvement plan

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced Wednesday that it has approved and will help with a plan to spend more than $50 million in wastewater treatment improvements and upgrades in the Mountain State. The improvements will include $2.7 million to Mount Hope for the construction of a two million gallon stormwater flow equalization tank and nearly $7.5 million to Oceana for the upgrade of the existing wastewater treatment plant and pump stations. “This federal-state partnership is critically important to achieving President Trump’s goal of improving our nation’s water infrastructure,” said EPA Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler in a news release.
