Fairview watermain project could disrupt town next week | Community columns


Hello Barrackville!

I like this last little bit of cold lately. It gives me the illusion that I still have time to put my garden in order! I just ordered blocks for a few raised beds and will be leveling them and ordering dirt from our local horse farm to fill them.

Some of Scott’s online gardener tips are to place organic materials at the bottom of the bed, twigs, branches, leaves, etc. anything you can search for in the woods that will decay and create more soil later. It will save money and means the top of the bed can focus on the best floor I will have to buy. So if the weather and my back holds up, I should be ready to plant for Mother’s Day.

Road works on monumental water pipes

Pro-Contracting and Monumental Water are working through Barrackville to bring water lines to Fairview. As we know, Fairview has struggled for years with the quality of its water. We will have a brief inconvenience in some of our roads so that safe drinking water is delivered to their community. This is not a Barrackville City Council project. Pro-Contracting and Monumental Water will travel through town over the next few weeks from the Covered Bridge through High, Bryan, Rice, Pike to Smith Road and finally Route 250. Some disruption to Barrackville lines is expected. The Barrackville City Council is not involved in the disruption or repairs of these incidents. If you are impacted by the work of Pro-Contracting and Monumental PSD, please contact them at 304-363-1700 or 304-363-7025.

Contact Information: If you have any news to include in our column, contact Diana Marple by email [email protected] or by phone at 304-376-1759 by 8 p.m. Tuesday.
