A long-planned improvement project for the Weirton Area Water Board is set to begin later this month. Thrasher Engineering reported to the board that a pre-construction meeting was held Oct. 20 with James White Construction and Alex Paris Construction, the two firms involved in the project. The $6.9 million project will include the installation of approximately 4 miles of new pipe, as well as sections of plastic inserts at various points in the water system. It is designed to prevent any future system-wide water outages.
