WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Carol Miller (R-WV) announced yesterday a grant worth $1,850,000, from the Appalachian Regional Commission to the Wyoming County Commission for the Coal Mountain Waterline Extension Project.

This project will provide clean drinking water to 166 customers in the Coal Mountain, Big Cub Branch, Upper Sturgeon Branch, and Road Branch communities.
