From The Register-Herald, “Under plans approved by the commission and the City of Oak Hill, the embattled Arbuckle PSD will be managed by the city of Oak Hill.
Wender said Arbuckle has defaulted on bonds to the United States Department of Agriculture and has violated West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection orders for discharging sewage into Arbuckle Creek. Work to correct filtration and pump issues would be cost-prohibitive.
“This has not been a fun 17 years, dealing with Arbuckle,” Wender said.
Arbuckle has been investigated for loss and misappropriation of funds. Residents pointed out that county and state officials did not prosecute those responsible, including a suspect accused of embezzlement.”
