View a 21 minute slide show

of the South Fork Rivanna Reservoir tour

On the morning of August 22, 2008, Charlottesville Tomorrow joined the

South Fork Reservoir Stewardship Task Force

for a field trip led by Kevin Sauer, Head Coach for the University of Virginia women’s rowing team.

The tour of the South Fork Rivanna Reservoir is the first action of the Task Force since it held its

first meeting on August 12, 2008

. The members will develop recommendations for the use and maintenance of the reservoir, a key component of the community water supply, to guide its stewardship over the next fifty years.

Charlottesville Tomorrow

has produced a

twenty-one minute slide show and audio podcast

which highlights Sauer’s presentation to the group.  Coach Sauer has spent twenty years on the reservoir and during the tour he provided detailed insights into many of the challenges he sees facing UVA’s rowing program and other recreational users.
