The ceremony will take place Monday, Feb. 7, 2011, at 11:00 a.m. on the Third Floor of the Old Jail at 206 Court Street in Madison, W.Va.

The partnership agreement allows for construction of a 123,500-gallon water storage tank, a 115-gallon per minute booster pump station and approximately 5,000 feet of water lines along Hurricane Branch, including valves, fire hydrants and meters.
