Charlottesville Committee Working to Improve Stormwater Management
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - A committee working on stormwater management in Charlottesville is hoping its master plan will help bring some relief.
The Water Resources Protection Program advisory committee met Monday, June 10, at CitySpace to review those plans and get updates on projects.
For the past few years the city has been working to address the issue. About a year ago, Charlottesville completed a master plan made up of two things: a drainage component and a water quality component. There are also several priority projects under each component.
"We are also implementing a program that is replacing and rehabilitating infrastructure that is old and needs some maintenance. So we're also implementing that program as well," said Lauren Hildebrand, director of utilities.
The meeting also went over the details in the utility rate report on possible increasing fees and the feedback from city council.
The committee is also reviewing their annual report that will get put on Charlottesville City Council's agenda for review.
