CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Four West Virginia counties are sharing $14.2 million in federal funds for watershed management projects.

More than $10 million is headed to Preston County for the Upper Deckers Creek site. The rest of the money includes $2.4 million for Mercer County, $1 million for Grant County, and $473,000 for Marshall County.
