A severe drought that began in 1939 caused a prolonged water crisis for the City of Beckley. After a frozen water main burst and water usage was restricted, officials ordered a better water supply be provided. The solution was to access nearby Glade Creek. Construction of a dam and reservoir began in late 1940, and the water company first tapped new supply in late 1941.
