CLARKSBURG W.Va. — An official with the Clarksburg Water Board says thousands of metered lines have been reviewed in recent weeks in connection with possible lead contamination.
Water board president Paul Howe said on Thursday’s ‘Talk of the Town’ on WAJR Radio the board continues testing for lead services, updating services where possible and distributing bottled water and filters for families affected.
Howe said the strategy includes materials inventory, sampling, corrosion control treatment and service line replacement.
“We’ve been testing now for some time,” Howe said. “There is no indication that lead is present in our raw water that we harvest from the West Fork River or the finished water in the treatment plant.”
