W.Va. Dropping Ball on Stimulus Sewer Funding?

MetroNews reports that West Virginia may end up not spending millions of federal dollars meant to build and improve sewer systems.

"The state has been allocated $61 million dollars in a loan fund, but with an August 17 deadline to have bids approved quickly approaching, only six projects equaling $10 million have been approved," the report said. "State Department of Environmental Protection Spokesperson Kathy Cosco says 11 other sewer projects with a total price tag of $19 million should meet the upcoming deadline."

Meanwhile, raw sewage goes into Kanawha River form Charleston's sewers every time it rains hard and Danny Jones sits on his hands.
