Hampton Roads, Va.

— The Department of Veterans Affairs is providing financial support to the hamptons road crew working to clear a toxic spillway and other debris from the Chesapeake Bay after the agency discovered that it had inadvertently sent thousands of gallons of oil through a spillway.

The VA announced Friday that it would contribute $50,000 in support of the cleanup effort.

The funds will be split between the state and the VA.

The department said the funding will help ensure that no harm to wildlife or wildlife habitat occurs.

The cleanup will involve the removal of the remaining oil, as well as the recovery of oil and debris.

The oil is being stored at a site owned by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT).

The department has been working with the EPA and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to clear the spillway, which runs from Hampton Roads through the Hampton Roads Bridge, the U-shaped bay, the George Washington Bridge and the Virginia State Water Gap, according to the department.

Voters in Virginia approved a plan to spend $10 million to clear and repair the spillways in July.

VA officials said they planned to use the money to repair the oil and clear up a hazardous spillway that was breached in the summer.

The VA also plans to hire additional workers to perform the cleanup.

The department said it had received over 8,000 emails from the public about the spill, and many individuals have expressed their concerns to the VA about their safety and environmental impact.

The Virginia Department’s Response Team (VTR) and the VTR Crews will be working closely with the Virginia Environmental Protection Office and the Chesoo and Virginia National Guard.

The VTR will be responsible for coordinating the work and ensuring that there are no injuries, illnesses or property damage.

The Department of Energy is working with state and local agencies to identify, analyze and identify potential causes of the spill.

The state is also working with other states and other federal agencies to determine the best course of action for remediation of the damage.

In an email to reporters, the VTB said the work is expected to take at least four months.
