"O. Out of the amounts in this item, $10,000,000 the second year from the general fund shall be provided to the City of Petersburg for expenses incurred from the installation of a water tank and associated infrastructure at a chemical plant complex in the city. The water tank and associated infrastructure shall be adequate to ensure the water pressure can support the minimum fire protection and manufacturing needs of a regional pharmaceutical manufacturing cluster. Disbursement of these funds are contingent upon the City of Petersburg executing a loan through the Department of Environmental Quality's Virginia Clean Water Revolving Loan Fund to address sewer improvements at the chemical plant complex. The amount of the loan shall be sufficient to provide water and sewer improvements necessary to sustain a regional pharmaceutical manufacturing cluster, including the construction of a pump station that will substantially increase sewer capacity."


(This amendment provides $10.0 million in the second year from the general fund to improve a chemical plant complex located in the City of Petersburg. The plant has substantial chemical manufacturing infrastructure that requires a significant upgrade to the water and sewer utilities, once these improvements are made, the plant will be able to serve as the centerpiece of a regional pharmaceutical manufacturing cluster.)
