Alderson holds dedication ceremony

ALDERSON, WV (WVVA) -

The town of Alderson held a dedication ceremony today for improvements made to its waste water treatment plant.

The Army Corps of Engineers assisted with the $6 million design and upgrades.

The treatment facility will now meet water quality standards set forth in the Greenbrier River Restoration Plan. One of the noticeable improvements will be less algae in the river.

"So the water that gets treated..it gets treated to address the phosphorous issues that leads to the algae blooms in the water during the summer heated bright sunlight months. So this is really important to not only service customers but also making sure the Greenbrier River is as pristine as possible," said Representative Evan Jenkins.
