NOTICE OF HEARING

NOTICE OF HEARING Red Brush Phase III Condemnation Proceedings The City of Beckley Sanitary Board has filed Eminent Domain suits on the below mentioned properties for the purpose of the Red Brush Phase III Sewer Project. The purpose of this project includes: Extending sanitary sewers to unserved residences within the Redbrush area; replacing structurally and flow-capacity deficient sanitary sewers in the Redbrush, Piney Oaks, Springdale and Woodlawn Avenue areas of the City; and reducing groundwater infiltration and surface water inflow (I/I) within the Woodlawn Avenue and Springdale areas since much of the existing sanitary sewers are located within a low-lying and wet area that is subject to flooding and high groundwater conditions. As part of this Project, Beckley is required to place certain sewer lines through properties in these neighborhoods. Beckley must acquire a permanent easement and right of way for the purposes of relocating, installing, maintaining, laying, operating, repairing and removing sewer lines and related appurtenances. The plans for this project may be found at Instrument Number 5044-8961 in the Record Room of the Raleigh County Clerk; the plans may also be found by contacting the Beckley Sanitary Board. The plans show how the easement will cross the properties involved.
