M-burg Could Lose Reservoir


Herald of May 26, 1994

The Martinsburg Municipal Authority learned last week that it may soon lose the emergency use of the reservoir. The authority no longer uses the reservoir as a water supply for the borough, but has retained the use of it for fire protection and in case of an emergency, such as the storm that knocked out power in December 1992. However, the Department of Environmental Resources recently informed the authority that it may not grant the authority a water allocation permit if it does not comply with certain requirements, including setting up a program for water conservation for authority water customers.

A plaque honoring the memory of Dr. Ben F. Van Horn was unveiled at the Replogle High School Alumni banquet held May 7 at Northern Bedford High School. The plaque bears a likeness in bronze of the former NB chief school administrator. Dr. Van Horn served for 25 years as superintendent of the Northern Bedford schools. Before that he served for 19 years as a teacher and principal of Replogle High School in New Enterprise.
