WASHINGTON (WDTV)-- U.S. Senators Joe Manchin and Shelley Moore Capito announced more than $3.5 million from the U.S. Department of Agriculture for water and wastewater infrastructure in Doddridge and Hardy counties.

According to a press release from Manchin's office, the funding will provide quality and dependable potable water, as well as fire protection services to residences in Doddridge County. It will extend water services to Hardy County.

“West Virginians deserve access to clean drinking water, no matter where they live.
