PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - Two residences will be demolished in the latest phase of a flood mitigation project in Wood County.

The Parkersburg News and Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1QvwoTs ) reports that the County Commission awarded a contract on Monday to Empire Builders to demolish the structures in Happy Valley.

The county acquired and demolished 15 flood-prone residences in Happy Valley during the project’s previous four phases. The project is funded by the federal Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. Property owners’ participation is voluntary.

After the residences are demolished, no permanent structures can be built on the properties.
