Restoration of Rainelle Flood-Control Channel Begins
RAINELLE, W.Va. -- Restoration work has begun on two flood-control channels in the town of Rainelle, which was devastated by flooding last June.
The West Virginia Conservation Agency and its contractors are removing sediment from channel beds and clearing thick brushy growth from banks. Starting Monday, the West Virginia National Guard will begin transporting the debris to a central site for incineration.
For Rainelle Mayor Andy Pendleton, the work is a welcome sign of progress.
