CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (WV News) — The Clarksburg Water Board on Friday approved a preliminary corrective action plan for addressing lead in some customers’ drinking water. The plan will now be submitted to the state Department of Health and Human Resources.
The action plan was required under separate administrative orders from the DHHR and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Changes or additions to the plan are expected as agencies review the proposal.
The initial priority under the proposed plan is the development of a system-wide inventory of known and suspected lead water lines, including lines on both the utility side and the customer side of the meter.
The inventory will be created through record review, water sampling and visual confirmation of lead lines.
