Clear drinking water is a luxury we forget to appreciate over time.
The Clarksburg Water Board received an award from the state Thursday, because of the quality of its water. The ‘Drinking Water Performance Gold’ award was presented on behalf of the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources to the water board.
The board has received this award in the past, and officials said the award is based on many things, one of them the clarity of the water.
“The regulation is 0.30 turbidity units, and they are able to achieve less than 0.1 turbidity units coming out of the plant 95 percent of the time,” said Mike Hawranick, district engineer for the state health department.
The board also discussed the start of the Topper Hill project beginning in October.
