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?
