October 27, 2005 public meeting on the local water supply plan

.  The State Water Control Board Meeting issue relates to new waste water nutrient allocations that may be imposed on treatment facilities like Moores Creek in an effort to clean up the Chesapeake Bay watershed to the point the Bay can be removed from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s list of impaired waters by 2010.

“Finally… I would like to mention for the benefit of the public and everyone here that we do have a public outreach meeting scheduled this Thursday night at 6:30, staff will be available an hour earlier at 5:30 at Monticello High School.  We will be talking about the new Ragged Mountain Alternative [aka

] for the water supply plan at that meeting. We will have some updated information on cost estimates and we’ll be talking about possible, really two alternative pipeline routes between South Fork Reservoir and Ragged Mountain Reservoir. The agenda, and the PowerPoint presentation for Thursday night has just been approved and… we hope to have that on the website by the end of the day today or, if not,  by the first thing tomorrow so the public can preview the information in advance.”
