CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – West Virginia officials say eight wastewater infrastructure projects across the state will share 45 million dollars in financing from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund.

The low-interest loans for construction are intended to help protect and improve water quality in rivers, lakes and streams and help keep sewer rates more affordable.

Projects targeted for funding include 4 million dollars for Belle to replace its treatment plant and upgrade its main pump station in Kanawha County.

Other funding includes $3.4 million for Benwood, $3.4 million for the Central Boaz Public Service District, and $10.9 million for the Greater Harrison County district.
