On March 27, 2006, the Board of the


Rivanna Water & Sewer Authority (RWSA)


held its monthly meeting.  In his Executive Director’s report, Tom Frederick included updates on the

below normal stream flow levels

, a discussion of conservation and drought management issues, and news of an upcoming public meeting on the

water supply pipeline plans

.

In other business, there was significant public input from the Woolen Mills neighborhood on odors generated by the RWSA wastewater compost facility. The Board discussed the composting facility and approved a more detailed engineering study to look at mitigating the odors. Enclosing the compost facility and scrubbing the air being released could cost $7.9 to $9.9 million based on a recent “abbreviated study.”  The RWSA Board expects to hear recommendations from the in-depth study at its June 2006 meeting.
