On May 3, 2016 the
Town of Clay, W.Va. dedicated its newly upgraded water treatment plant as part
of a Section 571, Environmental Infrastructure Program, project. Approximately $1 Million in funding from the
program was used for plant upgrades that expanded the intake capacity from 400
gallons per minute (GPM) to 800 GPM and increased the plant storage capacity to
73,500 Gallons. The U.S. Department of
Agriculture (USDA) also provided funding for the project.
Guest speakers for the ceremony included Senator Shelley
Moore Capito (R-WV-Sr), a representative for Senator Joe Manchin,
representatives for the USDA, the Clay County Commission, the former Mayor of
Clay and LTC Marty Lewton.
