A Virginia foundation has awarded an $80,000 grant to the West Virginia Rivers Coalition.

The coalition says the two-year grant from the Virginia Environmental Endowment will support its efforts to promote responsible water policies.

The funding will be used to provide science-based analysis of proposed policies affecting water quality statewide. Other projects include a campaign to establish a Birthplace of Rivers National Monument in the southern Monongahela National Forest.

The coalition announced the grant Monday in a news release.
