WVCA extends contract work in flooded regions

The West Virginia Conservation Agency (WVCA) has extended contracts for flood relief work in several affected counties.

Contracts for Holden-based Prime Contracting in the Elk Conservation District (ECD) and for Lewisburg-based LD Hanna and Son in the Greenbrier Valley Conservation District (GVCD) will be extended through Aug. 22. ECD encompasses Clay, Nicholas and Webster counties. GVCD encompasses Greenbrier, Monroe and Pocahontas counties.

To date, this contract work has exceeded $600,000.

Contracts in Kanawha County are being handled by the Kanawha County Commission. The WVCA is providing technical support and oversight.

Contractors are working fulltime to stabilize stream banks and to clear massive amounts of flood debris from stream beds. Along Kanawha County’s Jordan Creek, for example, 880 loads of debris have been removed.

The additional work is in response to Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin’s extension of the State of Emergency through 5 p.m. Aug. 22.

West Virginians needing assistance or wishing to help those affected by flooding are encouraged to visit www.wvflood.com, West Virginia’s official source of information on flood recovery and volunteer efforts.
