Kanawha County Officials have been working with officials from the Governor Tomblin’s Office this morning to schedule water distribution for Kanawha County for today. At this time, the Governor Tomblin’s Office has arranged for 3 tractor trailers of water to be delivered to the Kanawha County Courthouse for distribution. The distribution site will open at 12:00 noon on Goshorn Street, which can be accessed from Virginia Street, by turning left on Goshorn before the Courthouse. The Water Distribution site will remain open until 5:00 p.m. or until the trucks are empty.
Commission President Kent Carper stated, “At this time, this will likely be the final day for water distribution in Kanawha County as federal resources have been exhausted. I would like to take this time, to thank Governor Tomblin and his staff, General Hoyer and the National Guard, our Volunteer Fire Departments, Local Police Departments, Mayors, Sheriff Rutherford’s Office, the State Police and the many community organizations that have assisted in the distribution, of this much needed water, to the public.”
