Charleston, WV (AP) -- Thirteen Army Corps of Engineers' projects in southern West Virginia will share nearly $25.4 million in federal stimulus money.
The money will be used to restore aquatic ecosystems, protect communities from flooding and help move commerce along the state's waterways.
Beneficiaries include the Ohio River Locks and Dams, Sutton Lake, Summersville Lake and Beech Fork Lake.
Democratic Senators Robert C. Byrd and Jay Rockefeller along with U.S. Rep. Nick J. Rahall announced the funding Wednesday.
