HINTON, W.Va. (AP) - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers plans to temporarily halt water flowing through the Bluestone Dam on Wednesday.

The corps says halting the water flow will allow crews to conduct a periodic inspection of the dam’s sluice gates.

A fish survey downstream from the dam also is planned while the water flow is halted.

Crews will begin closing the gates early Wednesday morning. After the inspection is completed, crews will slowly open the gates to return the New River to a normal flow.
