Don Judy, pastor of White Pine Church of the Brethren in Romney, W.Va., is celebrating a major success in his campaign to bring public water to dozens of homes in Purgitsville. A $2 million block grant for the project was announced earlier this week.
It “puts the icing on the cake…. I think it’s amazing,” he said in an article in the Hampshire Review.
Judy began working on the issue several years ago. In 2019, water tests revealed methane and ethane in well water in the community.
