Fluvanna Holds Public Forum for Proposed Water Line
Fluvanna County wants to keep the public involved in a discussion that's been in the works for years about a proposed water line in Zion Crossroads.
People across the county voiced their opinion on Aqua Virginia's water system proposal, and supervisors said they are listening and keeping an open mind.
Under Aqua Virginia's plan, a water line and sewage system would come to Zion Crossroads and spur economic development in Fluvanna County.
Will Cockrell with the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission said, "Any additional revenue would be a welcome change for the county."
It would cost $9 million to build the water line from Lake Monticello to Zion Crossroads.
Fluvanna County Administrator Steve Nichols says while this plan may affect taxpayers, supervisors are exploring all options. He added, "Between us and surrounding counties, between other entities that may be interested."
The public is keeping an open mind as well. Wayne Carney of Fluvanna County said, "This sounds like a reasonable solution and I would like to see how it flows out."
Nichols says that he hopes to hold information sessions on each plan they consider to keep the public in the conversation.
