Ms. Provence has done the area a great service with this article. She has taken a difficult -- and generally boring story -- and made it readable, understandable and important. No doubt serious discussion of the water situation will arise from her article. thank you, Ms. Provence, and The Hook for...

On siltation of the South Fork Rivanna Reservoir: At a recent meeting about water quality in the Rivanna River, a speaker from DEQ said that without intervention, the South Fork Rivanna Reservoir will eventually come to an "equilibrium" -- which means it will be very shallow and sediment will flow...

Free speech today writes: "Do you see any stream of significance flowing into the reservoir? One good truck spill of something toxic on I-64 can eliminated a source of water for Charlottesville." There are already significant streams that flow into the Ragged Mountain that go under I-64. Look at...

Thanks for the article and statistics. Three important numbers missing: 10.6, 18.7, and 1977. The first two are average daily water demand now and in year 2055 (MGD=million gallons per day), and allow calculation of how many days of water supply we have. The 1977 drought is too controversial to...

People need to understand the Ragged Mountain Reservoir is basically a holding pond. It does not have sufficient inflow to support itself which is why it is filled from the Sugar Hollow Reservoir. Look on a topographical map. Do you see any stream of significance flowing into the reservoir? One...
Amy commented on Lewis reads from the Virginiad
What stinks about that is that they already had a date scheduled for March 11! The Manchester, NH show originally on March 11 is now on April 9. So now 3 shows are messed up instead of 2.
Phil commented on Lewis reads from the Virginiad
I looked on van-halen.com, and the Charlottesville make-up show is March 11. Cheers!
