CHARLESTON, W.Va.  — Renovations to the West Virginia Capitol building to address water intrusion that is affecting both the outer and inner parts of the building’s dome are into their second month.

Diane Holley-Brown, director of communications for the state Department of Administration, explained the pipes that collect water from the outer dome were in poor condition, causing the water to visibly damage the interior of the rotunda.
