ARC GRANT WATERLINE EXTENSION PROJECT

This project extends a water line to support the development of planned tourism facilities, as well as upgrade other parts of Wilderness PSD's distribution system to create reliable and consistent water for all existing and future development in the project area, which includes areas within an opportunity zone in Nicholas County.  Funding will also be used to upgrade the Summersville Water Works disribution system, a critical part of the inter-related network.  The waterline extension portion of the project involves construction of 150 linear feet of 8-inch line, 2,700 linear feet of 6-inch line, and a 120,000 gallon elevated water storage tank.  The upgrades in Summersville include 1,450 linear feet of 8-inch line and 1,600 linear feet of 6-inch line.  The final component, which supports both systems, includes the construction of a 150 gallons per minute booster station and the upgrade of the Whitewater Road pump station from 140 gallons per minute to 250 gallons per minute.

AML - SNOW HILL WATERLINE EXTENSION PROJECT

WVDEP has determined that the area of the Snow Hill Waterline Extension Project is impacted from pre-1977 coal mining operations. This project consists of the construction of approximately 5,700 LF of 4-inch and smaller diameter water lines, 4 water meters and related appurtenances.  The project is being funded via a grant from Abandoned Mine Lands due to pre-1977 mining activity and will bring water service to four residences in the Snow Hill area.

Wilderness PSD filed an application for federal financial assistance with the U. S.
