1.31.11 Citizens for a Sustainable Water Supply Plan’s Dede Smith joins Coy to discuss the latest on the water supply plan. In today’s conversation, Smith talks facts and figures surrounding the new addition to the dam at the Ragged Mountain Reservoir. According to the new information in place, extending the dam to 42 feet (as originally planned) instead of 30 feet (as was recently voted upon) is actually more financially prudent. Sound bites from an angry Ken Boyd at a recent Albemarle County Board of Supervisors meeting are also included. And finally, the question remains: to dredge or not to dredge?

1.21.11 Member of The Charlottesville City Council Satyendra Huja joins Coy to discuss the water supply plan vote. After it had appeared that City Council were a unified front in favor of their water supply plan, a surprise vote a couple of nights ago pushed forward a different plan which caught even Mayor Dave Norris off guard. Mr. Huja was one of the members of the council who voted in favor of this new motion, which passed by a 3-2 margin, that will call for a brand new dam to be built at Ragged Mountain. In today’s conversation, Huja discusses the growth in water usage at UVA, and he also proclaims his support for proceeding with the plans for dredging. Listen in as callers react with their thoughts on the water supply plan and the recent vote.

1.19.11 Former Charlottesville City Council member Kevin Lynch and Citizens for a Sustainable Water Supply Plan’s Dede Smith join Coy to continue the discussion of the water supply news. Both Lynch and Smith were present at the vote last evening to rebuild the dam at Ragged Mountain, and both guests feel like the effort to push the motion to a vote was clearly planned a and describe it as a blindsiding of Mayor Dave Norris. The plan to extend the existing dam, championed by the Mayor, appears to have been abandoned, but the City Council did not necessarily side with the proposal of the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors. Find out where we go from here, as well as all of the details of this new plan, the “third plan” as Coy calls it, in today’s conversation.

1.18.11 Citizens for a Sustainable Water Supply Plan’s Dede Smith joins Coy to discuss the latest on the water supply debate. The Albemarle County Board of Supervisors met with the Charlottesville City Council today to try to reach a compromise on the water supply debate, and according to Smith, who attended, very little compromise was made. Neither side is pushing for an extension of the 2006 plan, but now both Albemarle County and the City of Charlottesville have their own ideas, respectively. Will the existing water reservoir finally be dredged? How well are the citizens truly being represented? Get all of the insight and reaction, here.

12.10.10 Citizens for a Sustainable Water Supply Plan’s Dede Smith joins Coy to discuss Albemarle County’s letter to the DEQ saying it will not compromise on the water supply plan. Dede reacts by calling it ironic that the county has labeled the DEQ a threat when it is an asset which can ultimately help their cause. She also feels that both sides need to take a closer look at the fiscal implications involved.Tensions between the city of Charlottesville and the county of Albemarle appear to be coming to a head on this issue, and the lack of cooperation could stem from more than just the water supply debate.
