Oak Hill Will Hold Public Meeting On New Water Program

Oak Hill– The City of Oak Hill recently adopted a Storm Water Management Program. This program is commonly referred to as MS4 which stands for Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System.

There will be a meeting open to the public on Wednesday, July 19, 2017 in the vicinity of the Shoney’s parking area at noon.

One topic of discussion will be the rain garden that is located at the edge of the commercial parking lot. MS4 is a program designed to improve the quality of storm water and lessen the impact to the receiving streams. The program is administered by the City of Oak Hill and monitored through water sampling and inspections by the WV Department of Environmental Protection. Public education, outreach, involvement and participation is vital for the success of MS4. Plan to attend this educational meeting and learn what you can do to help improve your local watershed.
