Greenbrier County Public Service District #2 is working diligently to move forward on a water line extension project. The project’s design has already been funded and plans are being put in place to finalize the route, which will allow the PSD to provide potable water service to up to 400 additional county residents.
There are two major components to the project: a water extension from Sam Black Church to Asbury (including select side roads) and another extension from Charmco to Rainelle. Both projects are aimed at providing water service to those currently without a public connection, but the Charmco to Rainelle project will also serve as an interconnect with the Town of Rainelle, which can provide a secondary water source for the area in case of emergency.
These extensions, though, are reliant on residents signing up for water service before plans can be finalized. To make the projects viable, a majority of potential customers in each area will need to participate.
Residents can learn more about the project – and sign water user agreements – at an upcoming public meeting held by the Greenbrier County Commission. Detailed information will be presented on the proposed water line routes, and the Commission, the PSD, and their engineer, The Thrasher Group, will be available to answer questions.
The meeting will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 13 at 6 p.m. at the James Chapel United Methodist Church. Those with questions or concerns ahead of time – or interested in signing up for service but unable to attend – may contact Greenbrier County PSD #2 at 304-438-9283 during their regular operating hours, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
