Massive thanks to WV Rivers Coalition for this action alert, which has all the details you need to attend public hearing on HB 2289, to reclassify the Kanawha River to be protected as a drinking water supply (Category A), set for 8:30 a.m., tomorrow Monday, Feb. 16.  The weather forecast is not the greatest, so we really need folks already in the Charleston area to show up if at all possible.

If you think you aren’t going to be able to make the hearing, but would like to have your short comments in support of HB 2289 submitted for the record, e-mail your comments to vivian@ohvec.org by 4 p.m. today, Sunday, and I will print them up and submit them.
