Here you can view the planned Lower Cove Run dam site currently being pursued by the Hardy County Commission (HCC) and the Potomac Valley Soil Conservation District (PVSCD).  Note the pristine beauty of the the tiny valley and that both the HCC and the PVSCD refuse to acknowledge public outcry against this planned dam.  Both agencies are ignoring the people who elected them when it comes to the Lower Cove Run and Cullers Run dam sites.
