The Jefferson County Board of Health is aware that our health department, especially staff in the environmental health division, are the target of a misinformation campaign.  This is causing significant anxiety among residents and property owners.  I want to assure the public that our health department continues to diligently follow all the laws protecting our drinking water.  We welcome the opportunity to discuss these issues personally with any community stakeholder.  You may call me directly at 304 728 8416 extension 3029.
Our Environmental Health Division has the full support of the West Virginia Office of Environmental Health Services and Dr. Cathy Slemp, State Health Officer.  If you prefer, you may direct inquiries to the state level  Feel free to contact the Director of the Public Health Sanitation Division, Ms. Judy Vallandingham, at 304 356 4341.  You may also call the Program Manager for the WV On Site Sewage Program, Mr. Rick Hertges, at 304 356 4340.
