(This amendment provides an additional $3.4 million from the general fund for safe drinking water grants to local waterworks that have critical drinking water supply demand issues and require funding to complete the necessary drinking water project planning and/or construction. Funding will help to provide safe and affordable drinking water to Virginians who are currently without drinking water. It is estimated that 30,000 Virginians are without adequate drinking water. The Southwest Virginia Water Summit of 2000 reported a capital need in Southwest Virginia alone of $17 million in grants per year over 10 years in addition to present sources of funding.)
