The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) has awarded $473,170 to Wise County for the Bear Creek Water Project. Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) issued the following statement:

“Access to clean water is important for an area’s health and quality of life. ARC’s award of $473,170 to Wise County for the Bear Creek Water Project will extend public water service to more households and improve the well-being of county residents.”

According to ARC, the project will fund installation of 2,600 linear feet of 6-inch water line, 850 linear feet of 2-inch water line, 1,700 linear feet of ¾-inch water service line, two fire hydrants, all applicable appurtenances, and eleven connections.
