Thank you to the members of this committee who have stepped up to move this major project forward. Gilmer Watershed Coalition This is a very exciting group to work with. Many local residents have begun an endeavor to reduce the im- pact of flooding in our county. The local group has gained the at- tention of Canaan Valley Institute and was recommended for the Alan Moilohan appropriation of $250,000,00 for a pilot flood-map- ping project. The group has done several stream cleanups and assess- ments and is currently sponsoring community meetings to gain input from residents on flooding issues. The group is raising funds to place a stream gauge at Sand Fork to provide a more accurate crest prediction. In an effort to fund many local watershed activities the group is plan- ning a"River Fest" for next fall. This group has something for everyone and they are really making a differ- ence.
