Beginning Monday at 8 a.m., Morgantown Utility Board (MUB) crews will close Valley View Avenue from Willowdale Road to Chateau Royale while MUB crews replace water lines. The work is expected to continue for three weeks.
On Thursday, June 21, Morgantown Utility Board successfully sold $48 million in bonds in support of the Cobun Creek dam and raw water reservoir project. The sale was executed as expected and budgeted. Work is scheduled to begin in August 2018.

To clarify, during MUB’s board of directors meeting on Monday, January 22, the board took no formal action on MUB assuming responsibility for garbage billing. MUB General Manager Tim Ball did recommend to the board that the program continue to be explored. The board accepted the recommendation.
