The state Department of Environmental Protection has released a website that will soon house new regulations for above ground storage tanks. For now, the site contains all of the public comments the agency has received while they prepare to write those rules. As heroin use rises in the state, U.S. Prosecuting Attorney for the Northern District of West Virginia William Ihlenfeld is looking for ways to treat the problem and a new video project is focused on supporting artisans in the Eastern Panhandle.
