In the News: WVU Dam Rehab

Thanks to Megan Hudok, a reporter with WBOY, for covering the Groundbreaking.

Ground was broken on a nearly $8 million rehabilitation of the Upper Deckers Creek Site 1 dam in Preston County on August 7. As part of the project, the depth of water behind the dam, built in 1969, will be increased by 10 feet to create a dedicated water supply for the Public Service District No. 1 in Arthurdale and to bring the dam into current design and construction standards. 

The project is a collaboration between the West Virginia Conservation Agency, the Monongahela Conservation District, the Natural Resources Conservation Service and West Virginia University.
