ELKTON, Va. (WHSV) — The town of Elkton has received more than $300,000 for a riverbank restoration project on the South Fork of the Shenandoah River that runs through the town.
Town leaders say years of erosion has caused damage and now new money from the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries is helping to rebuild a section of the riverbed
“This beautiful river is used by many different people, fishing, canoeing,” said Elkton Mayor Wayne Printz. “Obviously the environment is the most important part so it’s just a multitude of things that we need to do. It’s the right things to do and we intend to follow the project through.”
