Griffith Announces Nearly $4.8 Million to Wise County for Improvements to the Public Service Authority’s Water System

U.S. Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) announced today that USDA Rural Development has awarded a $3,586,000 grant and a $1,202,000 loan to Wise County for improvements to Wise County Public Service Authority’s water system.

“I appreciate USDA Rural Development for facilitating this nearly $4.8 million grant/loan to Wise County in an effort to correct an existing problem within the Authority’s system’s water pressure. This is a welcome investment to the residents and businesses of Wise County,” said Griffith.

Through the Water and Waste Disposal Program offered by USDA Rural Development, this investment involves the replacement of approximately 29,120 linear feet of water line, and the installation of 12 gate valves, 10 fire hydrant assemblies, and associated water appurtenances. These improvements will ensure that Wise County’s water system meets minimum working pressure of 20 PSI.
