Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia is getting $800,000 from the Environmental Protection Agency to assess pollution problems.

The agency says the state Department of Environmental Protection, the cities of Nitro and Parkersburg, and Fayette County are getting the money as part of a national program targeting abandoned industrial and commercial properties.

The grants are supposed to cover the cost of assessing sites and planning cleanup projects.

EPA says it's giving a total $78.9 million to communities across much of the country.
