Another important event we’re hosting is coming up on September 16. Please register now for our second town hall with the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection’s Environmental Advocate’s Office. This meeting is an opportunity for the public to ask questions directly to DEP representatives or relay any issues or concerns happening in the state. We ask that you register in advance, and come prepared with any question you may want to ask. If there are any questions the DEP cannot answer during the meeting, one of us will follow up with you after the meeting.
