ATTENTION LEE COUNTY FARMERS!

The Town of Pennington is seeking local farms to be included in our bio-solids program. We are looking for farmers who have 25 acres or more of usable land that is relatively level and mostly rock free. We make every effort to recycle our bio-solids and need your help in making this possible. Some benefits of recycling bio-solids include reducing the use of commercial fertilizers and free soil testing. We are self-sufficient, providing the labor and equipment at no cost to the farmer. Bio-solids are a renewable resource, recovered during the process of cleaning waste water, that contains valuable nutrients and organic matter that improve soil quality. It is a treated, safe product and cost-effective alternative to fertilizer. 

If you are interested or have questions, please contact one of the operators at Pennington Gap Waste Water Plant at (276)-546-5343 or e-mail at wastewater@townofpenningtonva.gov

Annual Marathon

The marathon is a long-distance running event with an official distance of 42.195 kilometres (26 miles and 385 yards), usually run as a road race. The event was instituted in commemoration of the fabled run of the Greek soldier Pheidippides, a messenger from the Battle of Marathon to Athens.

The marathon was one of the original modern Olympic events in 1896, though the distance did not become standardized until 1921. More than 500 marathons are held throughout the world each year, with the vast majority of competitors being recreational athletes as larger marathons can have tens of thousands of participants.
