Bids sought for multi-million-dollar dam rehab in Preston County

The Monongahela Conservation District (MCD) will award a multi-million-dollar contract for dam rehabilitation work this summer as part of an ongoing effort to rehabilitate the state’s aging flood-control infrastructure.

The District began soliciting for bids on the rehabilitation of the Upper Decker’s No. 1 dam in Preston County last week. The advertisement can be viewed at http://www.wvca.us/proposedprojects/index.cfm

The earthen dam, located on West Virginia University’s JW Ruby Research Farm, supplies water to more than 1,600 customers of Public Service District 1 in Arthurdale. When work is completed, the water pool will be raised by 10 feet, thereby increasing water supply to Arthurdale and allowing for continued population growth.
