Water replacement project under way

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Brian Martin, project inspector for Thrasher Engineering, the company heading up the pipe replacement project for the town, told the Bath Town Council Monday that 25 percent of the main-line pipes are installed.

He said 35 percent of the new water meters are installed and the new completion date for the project is July 17, 2007.

Martin said work will begin next week on Fairfax Street from Wilkes Street to Washington Street.

Council member Garnet Marsh said there has been no interruption to businesses so far.

The project began in September to replace the town's century-old leaking water lines.

Bath Police Department honored

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Mayor Susan Webster said the town's police department was given a Community Traffic Safety Platinum Award from the American Automobile Association (AAA) last week.

This is the fourth year the department has won a safety award, she said. The first two years were silver and the third year also was a platinum safety award.
