This is an update regarding flash flooding that occurred on August 28, 2023.
Since the event, Kanawha PSD has worked with engineering contractors to perform detailed inspection in the affected area and to compile a cost estimate for repairs of the sanitary sewer infrastructure. This cost estimate was submitted to the Department of Homeland Security Emergency Management Division on October 10. An application for FEMA assistance was then submitted on behalf of the District. FEMA is in receipt of the application and is currently in process of review. Last week, engineers and representatives from Kanawha PSD participated in a conference call with various state, local, and federal entities in an effort to check up on the status of the FEMA application. There is no new information to report at this time. The application has not yet been approved. Your patience is greatly appreciated throughout this process.
