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.
