APPLE GROVE, W.Va. — A groundbreaking ceremony was held on Monday for the long in the planning wastewater treatment plant in Apple Grove. Nucor Steel donated 10 acres of land to the Mason County Public Service District for the project. The land is adjacent to Nucor’s steel mill which is currently in construction.

The Thrasher Group was the designer of the facility, with Hayslett Construction set to build it. The treatment equipment will be assembled by the Aqua-Aerobics company. Jonathon Carpenter from Thrasher served as host for Monday’s event.
