Report Says Dams Need Repairs
A state official says many of West Virginia's aging watershed dams don't meet current design standards and need repairs. West Virginia Conservation Agency executive director Brian Farkas says his agency doesn't have the resources to address the issue. There are 170 watershed dams in the state. Farkas says about 100 of them don't meet current design standards. Farkas says no state dams are in danger of failing, but engineers need to review the dams to determine repair costs.
