City Councilors Set to Decide on Grant to Clean Up Storm Water Runoff

Posted: Updated:
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WVIR) -

Charlottesville city councilors will decide Monday night whether to accept $182,000 grant to clean up storm water runoff around Charlottesville High School.

The city received the grant from the Chesapeake Bay green streets, green jobs, green towns program. It requires matching city funds.

The project would replace parts of Charlottesville High School's asphalt parking lot with permeable pavement as well as native trees and grasses.

Vice Mayor Dede Smith said, “So this is one more tool in our tool chest to use to get farther along in storm water management and environmental sustainability and its totally in line with what Charlottesville is working toward."

If council accepts the grant money, construction would begin on the project next summer.
