About Us


“The Harpers Ferry Bolivar Public Service District (PSD) is diligently planning for possible impacts from the Coronavirus outbreak.  The primary impacts to the PSD could be the health of our employees and the continuation of wastewater treatment service for our customers.  We have developed plans to safeguard the health of our employees and for the continuation of essential wastewater treatment service tasks in the event of PSD personnel becoming infected or quarantined.  Our plan has been reviewed by the Jefferson County Department of Health.  We will continue to review our policies in order to identify further actions we can take to minimize any disruptions that could occur during this outbreak.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our plant at 535-2390.” For more details on our protocols in response to the Coronavirus outbreak click here
