CADIZ Three road use and maintenance agreements were approved by the Harrison County commissioners Wednesday, with the new language included in the amendments.
An agreement with Chesapeake for a section of county Road 50 and a section of county Road 35 will be used to access the Jewett water wells.
According to Doug Crabtree of the county engineer's office, Chesapeake will use the roads to haul in 10 large empty holding tanks that will be connected by pipeline to the nearby well, so no hauling of loaded water tanker trucks should occur over the section of roads.
"Jewett spent a lot of money to put in those additional wells, and it is good to see they are finally able to recoup some of that money," said Commissioner Bill Host, as the board approved the route.
Two tabled agreements from a prior meeting were approved. One with Chevron will cover a portion of county Road 12, while one with Chevron Appalachia is for use of 2.4 miles of county Road 61.
"We originally held up this agreement due to Gulfport not being in compliance on the section of road," said Commissioner Dale Norris. "Gulfport has since completed work and repairs so we can approve this agreement."
