Proposals to fund drinking water projects in four West Virginia counties have been rejected by federal regulators.
The Charleston Gazette reports that the U.S. Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement said Thursday it is "impossible" at present for federal officials to approve the projects. They include the construction of water lines in Logan, Nicholas, Preston and Wyoming counties.
The DEP said it's working with local water systems, consultants and the OSM to provide additional data for the projects that were rejected.
