By John Conley - [email protected]

The Wyoming County Commission heard an update on a water project planned for Lower Huff Creek at its meeting last Wednesday.

The water line extension would include about 87 customers on Lower Huff Creek and Brush Fork, according to Eric Combs, a project manager and GIS specialist for Region I Planning and Development.

Costs are estimated at $2,035,000 for construction and $2,500,000 total.

The Wyoming County Commission is providing $50,000, Combs reported.

Also being sought is a $1.3 million Small Cities Block Grant and a $1 million loan from the West Virginia Infrastructure Council.

The line extension would include 25,640 square feet of 6 inch or less line. The project also includes a 54,000 gallon storage tank.

Water would come from the Greenville water plant, which already serves Cyclone and Lacoma, Combs said.

Combs said the application for the Small Cities Block Grant will be submitted in May.

The loan application to the Infrastructure Council will be submitted this month.
