BUCKHANNON -

The Upshur County Commission has denied a request from the Tennerton PSD to allow it to extend sewage service into the Lorentz community.

The PSD was looking to provide service to an additional 140 customers who currently use septic tanks.

The City of Buckhannon said it hasn't received any requests, and that the PSD was going out of its territory.

The PSD said it saw a need and residents did request service.

"Environmentally you need to expand your service and that's a growth area too and we look at that and there will be growth along Corridor H," said Terry Gould.

Gould said the PSD will study the possibility of providing an extension to customers in the Hickory Flat area.
