BROOKE COUNTY, W.Va. – Brooke Hills Park will remain open after a major sewage problem almost forced it to shut down.
Park officials announced they received a grant close to $7,000 to fix the issue.
“There was a problem at the park with the sewage grinder pump,” Delegate Phillip Diserio, D-W.Va. said. “Two pumps were there originally, (but) one was non-operational, (and) the other one was 15 years old with a 12-year life expectancy."
It was a problem that needed to be fixed right away.
"With only one pump working it was detrimental to the park,” Diserio said. “If it would've went down, the park would've had to completely shut down.”
The park is open because of a pair of recent grants.
“Went to the speaker of the house,” Diserio said. “He did grant $6,500. The Friends of Brooke Hills Park came back with a $6,000 matching grant.”
The park’s sewage system was recently updated. The grant money will go toward the cost it took to upgrade the system.
