For over 80 years, the Beckley Sanitary Board has provided sanitary sewer collection and wastewater treatment for the greater Beckley area. Since 2007, BSB also has operated a stormwater utility to manage urban runoff in Beckley’s urban watershed . BSB is a leading water pollution control utility in West Virginia.
Beckley Sanitary Board professionals dedicate their careers to protect the health of our local waterways, the environment, and the public we serve. Our team cleans the wastewater from residences and businesses in the community. Our stormwater programs reduce the impact of polluted runoff. As the world’s clean water supplies are threatened by many forms of pollution, today more than ever, water is our passion and we’d like it to be yours too.
BSB operates one of Southern West Virginia’s largest sanitary wastewater plants providing sanitary sewer to over 7,600 customers.
What We Do
Our wastewater collection system has over 180 miles of pipe and services portions of the City of Beckley, the Town of Mabscott, and outlying communities of Cherry Hill, Sprague, Raleigh, and the Airport Industrial Park including the Beckley Federal Correctional Institute.
More recently, BSB’s stormwater utility has been providing stormwater management services in the Beckley urban watershed. Federal and State mandates require that discharges from municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4s) are regulated.
In addition, more proactive management of stormwater infrastructure through routine maintenance and ongoing capital improvement projects help better the performance of storm sewers, in turn protecting resident’s property, health and quality of life.
Our stormwater program’s goal is to reduce the amount of pollution our community contributes to local waterways.
The stormwater utility service area is consistent with the MS4 permit boundary as designated by WV Department of Environmental Protection. The service area includes approximately 10,000 customers within the City of Beckley, Cranberry, Prosperity, Sprague, Raleigh and Dry Hill Road communities.
Our long term goal is to improve the health of Cranberry, Whitestick, Little Whitestick, and Piney Creeks.
