ByTAMI MELVIN Staff Writer Flooding has been a pro- blem in White Sulphur. A dam for flood prevention may be proposed by the Soil Conservation Service (SCS) of the U.S. Depart- ment of Agriculture for the city of White Sulphur Springs and the residents of Dry. Creek. The Greenbrier County Commission and the Green- brier Valley Soil Conserva- tion District asked the SCS to study Howards Creek. "Right now," McNeel said, "SCS is mainly evaluating one dam site on Dry Creek plus channel work on How- ards Creek in White Sulphur Springs.

The dam would be located on Dry Creek 3.3 miles above the intersection of Route 60 and Dry Creek Road. This site was chosen because it would have the least impact. on the people of the area, whil,o,,gj~ng the most protec- tion to residents along Dry Creek and in the city of White Sulphur Springs. "Besides reducing dama- ges and risks to people, the dam would cut flood insur- ance costs, reduce building restrictions and increase property values for many landowners," McNeel said. Mayor Bowling predicted the benefits, taken together, would lead to greater econo- mic growth for White Sul- phur Springs area. Actual construction of the dam is at least five years away, if the plan is economi- cally feasible, is approved by local sponsors, and is then budgeted by the Congress. By this fall the SCS will have a draft plan and environ- mental impact statement. During the winter several public meetings will be held for local review of the plan. This dam inGrant County is similar to the one under study for construction on D ry~ Creek ~boye~White Sulphur Springs. Geta oat the 4th of July Want to set off some skyrockets of your own this 4th?
