Campgrounds are popping up all over West Virginia to provide housing for the oil and gas crews working with the Marcellus Shale drilling. Those counties where there is a concentration of drilling have seen exponential growth in spaces and campgrounds being developed to park RVs.
Ritchie County has seen a few such campgrounds spring up almost overnight in some areas, and in the past month or so, even more are in the works. There is a shortage of housing for the workers with the oil and gas companies to be sure, but the answer may not be as simple as putting up light poles and laying basic sewer lines (if even that).
West Virginia is rolling out new requirements for building these campgrounds in light of the boom in their construction. The concern is primarily over sewage disposal, but there are other issues, as well.
Those putting in rental spaces for RVs should consult with their municipal governments for permits and guidelines on what is acceptable, however, the state has issued more stringent guidelines.
In Pennsboro, Mr. Bob Mossor is developing a campground using the new state guidelines with the finished site being used as a model for Ritchie County.
Changes include each campsite having its own sewer hookup and no more than two campers on a single water tap.
