With all the rain we've had just this summer, it's hard to think we could have any type of drinking water shortage. But it's always good to prepare.

Thursday night, Upshur County Commissioners asked Buckhannon city leaders what their plan would be if drought conditions would lead to low water supplies.

City officials assured commissioners that there are plans in place. That includes asking residents to cut back on water.

"We certainly have plan to curtail usage and do some rationing. If continued longer that that, there are some coal mines we have agreements with. We can pump a considerable amount of water into the river," said Buckhannon Mayor, Kenny Davidson.

Davidson said he wants assure all Buckhannon residents that there are no current water problems.

ALthough I think this might cut down on it for a short while; it really isn't going to be the answer as these drug sellers/users will just come up with another product to use in place of that. You just know they will.
