Virginia Energy removing potential dangerous landslide from Pound community
An emergency reclamation project is underway in Wise County to protect power supplies and homes from a landslide derived from surfacing mining that dates back to the 1960s.
The report from Virginia Energy says more than $52,000 has been invested to remove the erosion and other natural materials away from a community in the town of Pound located along Route 826.
The project will also include the removal of three acres of trees to reduce the stress on the landslide site.
