Address of Recipient: 
151 Peninsula Park Blvd, West Milford, WV 26408

Project Explanation/Purpose: 
The funding is to protect four exposed sanitary sewer lines that cross the West Fork River, a source of drinking water for many nearby and downstream communities.

This project was submitted for inclusion in the WVDEP FY2023 Intended Use Plan.

The project is an appropriate use of taxpayer dollars and will protect these sewer lines from 
damage. This project will prevent a devastating impact on the river ecosystem and protect a source of raw drinking water.

Mellin Ridge Water Line Extension

Project Recipient:
Town of Harrisonville

associated with the construction of Mellin Ridge Water Line Extension in the Town of Harrisville. The Mellin Ridge community in Ritchie County, located outside of Harrisville city limits to the southwest, is not served by a public water system. Residents currently rely on private wells for their water supply, which are an unreliable source of potable water. These private wells can become contaminated or run dry from overuse. Dry wells result in having potable water hauled in from a private company; this alternative is costly and inconvenient.

Justification of taxpayer funds:

drinking water to an underserved rural community. As a result of this project, potable water service will be initially provided to approximately 60 new customers and households in Mellin Ridge.
