CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia will receive $24.7 million in federal funds to fix the state’s water quality, ranked near the bottom of the nation.

The grant comes from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and aims to infuse West Virginia’s Clean Water State Revolving Fund.

The federal agency said Tuesday that the fund gives low-interest loans to build wastewater treatment facilities and other projects to improve water quality. The state will kick in $4.9 million in matching funds.
