South Fork Reservoir Stewardship Task Force seeking public input

Reader comments (0)


Members of the public who want to have their say on the future of the South Fork Rivanna Reservoir will have several chances to make their views known in coming weeks. First, a questionnaire has been posted on the Albemarle County website that seeks to find out how people use the reservoir and whether that usage has been affected over the last “5 to 7 years.” There are no questions that directly deal with dredging, but citizens who fill out the survey can leave comments on their “expectations or desires for the future” of the reservoir. The survey is not intended to serve as a scientific study, and the form states:

“The results of the questionnaire can not be used to draw any specific conclusions or assumptions about the general community's preferences, but will be helpful in providing the ideas and perspectives of those who chose to participate.”

Second, there will be two opportunities to make public comment before the end of the month. The Task Force has agreed to let attendees speak for the first 30 minutes of the group’s meeting on October 13, 2008 in Room 241 at the County Office Building. Also, the task force’s entire meeting on October 27, 2008 will be dedicated to public comment, and will be held in Lane Auditorium.  The Task Force is expected to make their recommendations on the future of the reservoir by the end of the year.
