Fluvanna – Louisa Water Partnership is Dead

By. William Des Roches

According to information obtained by the Free Enterprise Forum this evening (9/2), efforts to revive the Fluvanna – Louisa water partnership have ended.  Recently, Fluvanna officials presented alternative funding proposals to their Louisa counterparts, and those proposals were rejected earlier today.  This ends the discussions.  Fluvanna officials had been looking for creative ways to finance its share of the waterline, including a back-loaded payment structure to minimize the initial tax burden on county residents.

While the partnership may have dissolved, Fluvanna officials are looking at other ways to bring water to Zion Crossroads, including drawing initially from the Rivanna River, and then the James River when there is sufficient demand.  Officials have not ruled out working with the private sector to supply county needs.
