Experts Weigh In on Justice's Lakes Proposal


On this West Virginia Morning, in his State of the State address to the West Virginia Legislature last week, Gov. Jim Justice outlined a series of policy proposals, including one that seemed to come out of the blue.

“We need to develop multiple lakes within West Virginia,” Justice said.

Energy and environment reporter Brittany Patterson wanted to find out more about the history of this idea and what it would take to add lakes to the Mountain State.
