A grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture will help fund a water infrastructure project in Lincoln County.

Rep. Nick Rahall and Sens. Jay Rockefeller and Joe Manchin, all D-W.Va., announced the grant award April 22, Earth Day. The funding includes a $747,000 grant and $533,000 low-interest loan, both provided by USDA Rural Development, to the Lincoln County Public Service District for the Frances Creek Waterline Extension project. That project will bring water service to 84 additional households in the communities of Frances Creek and Kiah Creek in Lincoln County. The project includes 40,400 feet of new waterline, one water storage tank, one pressure reducing station, 22 fire hydrants and valves among other things.

Until the project is complete, residents will continue using ground wells as their only source of water. Some of those wells contain high levels of iron and bacterial contamination because of failing septic systems in the area.
