RWSA Hears Proposal for Carbon Treatment of Filtered Waste Water
Charlottesville and Albemarle County are working to improve their drinking water. The board of directors for the Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority met Tuesday to hear a proposal from an engineering consultant.
The proposal involves the carbon treatment of filtered waste water. If approved, new filters will increase the quality of the water put back into the system for public use.
"This is going to be advanced technology that is going to even further enhance the high-quality drinking water that we already have, and it's a major statement by the Rivanna authority in terms of its pursuit of the community's public health," said Tom Frederick, RWSA executive director.
The proposed plan has several options with costs that vary from between $17 million and $19 million.
An open house meeting is scheduled at the Moores Creek treatment facility on October 14 at 5 p.m. to discuss the topic and learn more.
