|The Pleasant Hill Public Service District (PHPSD) will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for the Kite Knob Water Storage Tank Project on today at 11:30 a.m..|
The project was funded through USDA-Rural Development. The ceremony will be held at the Pleasant Hill Church located 3.2 miles north of Grantsville along WV Route 16.
The PHPSD provides water service to approximately 660 households located in the northern portion of Calhoun County and the Smithville area of southern Ritchie County.
The District is in the process of initiating the construction of a water extension to serve approximately 45 homes in the community of Beatrice located west of Smithville on WV Route 47.
This project is financed with Small Cities Block Grant funds that have been awarded to the Ritchie County Commission.
Through the years the PHPSD has received numerous requests for water service and as a result, they are aggressively pursuing funding for a project that would extend public water to the Leaf Bank, Upper Back Fork, Leading Creek, Norman Ridge and Annamoriah areas of Calhoun County.
The PHPSD would like to thank existing customers for remaining patient the past few months while the staff has been diligently working to repair waterline breaks causing service interruptions.
