Stormwater Projects and Goals

 

VOB Locates Storm Drains Using GPS Technology

The Village of Barboursville has recently began locating and mapping the existing storm drains in town. The Village recently purchased a Spectra Precision GPS Unit to capture locations, elevations, and descriptions of the storm drains. We hope to have all storm drains located soon.

 

Tanyard Branch Stream Cleanup

Storm water from within the city drains into storm lines and eventually flows into Tanyard Branch. As part of the town’s WVDEP MS4 permit, the VOB is required to collect samples and test stream water throughout the year. We have found that Tanyard Branch is contaminated by fecal matter. We are in the process of identifying the source.
