Albemarle Supervisors to Discuss Monticello's Water, Sewer Service Upgrade
Update 11/06/2013: The Albemarle County Board of Supervisors approved moving ahead with a public hearing on the request to connect the Monticello site to public water and sewer.
Original 11/05/2013: Thomas Jefferson's mountaintop estate wants to tap into Albemarle County's water and sewer service.
Right now, county policy prevents that connection from being as simple as just putting in some pipes. The request requires special approval from the Board of Supervisors since the historic attraction sits outside the county's growth zone.
Jefferson’s historic home needs to modernize its facilities.
