On October 17, the WV Department of Health and Human Resources will host a public meeting from 2 – 4 p.m. at the Sylvester Town Hall Community Center, 22921 Coal River Road (Boone County).
The meeting will discuss the draft of the Boone Raleigh PSD Source Water Protection Plan. The water for about 1,600 people served by this PSD comes from the Big Coal River.
The plan theoretically would help lessen threats to the water system as well as prepare for emergencies and spills which could affect the water service in this area. If approved, the plan would be valid for a term of three years.
