U.S. House Approves Funding for Water Treatment Facilities in Carson and Washougal
Yearly Appropriations spending plan includes Southwest Washington community funding priorities secured by Herrera Beutler
Washington, July 22, 2022
The U.S. House of Representatives this week approved a yearly spending plan which included two Southwest Washington community funding priorities Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler secured through her position on the House Appropriations Committee, including funding for the Carson Water Treatment Plant Rebuild and the Washougal Wastewater Treatment Plant Anoxic Selector Project.
“Several important priorities for Southwest Washington advanced in Congress this week, including critical community-supported funding to establish water and wastewater treatment facilities in Carson and Washougal. I’ve put my support behind these projects to provide clean, drinkable water and lower costs for residents who live there,” Herrera Beutler said. “While the overall spending of this yearly federal spending bill was too high for me to support the package in its current form, I’ll continue working with congressional negotiators to ensure these critical priorities remain in the final bill so Carson and Washougal residents benefit from these clean water treatment projects.”
Project funding details:
Carson Water Treatment Plant Rebuild - $3,000,000
Washougal Wastewater Treatment Plant Anoxic Selector Project - $1,000,000
