RRBC Unveils 2012 Rivanna Watershed Snapshot

Posted: Updated:

Members of the Rivanna River Basin Commission (RRBC) are unveiling a new project Friday that they hope will make it easier for people to access information about the watershed.

The RRBC just completed the 2012 Rivanna watershed snapshot. The snapshot provides a quick but detailed look at the conditions of the river, covering things like water quality and public access.

RRBC hopes to give lawmakers, volunteers, and others interested in learning more about the Rivanna River the tools they need to help clean it up.

"We think that that will be helpful in accessing the type of information, that will be helpful for everyone from policy makers to people who are looking to put in on the river, or how they can help, for example," said Executive Director Leslie Middleton.

The unveiling of the watershed snapshot took place Friday at CitySpace on the Downtown Mall.

The RRBC plans to host other open houses to discuss the Rivanna snapshot at various locations around the watershed.
