Supervisors are eyeing a new plan to bring water to Zion Crossroads by tapping into the excess water and sewer treatment capacity available at the Fluvanna Correctional Center for Women.

The cost – at between $5 to $8 million - would be a fraction of the cost of other plans proposed so far, said Shaun Kenney, the chairman of the Fluvanna Board of Supervisors, in an interview today (Nov. 23).

The Fluvanna schools got their money. A large crowd attended the Nov. 20 Board of Supervisors meeting held in the circuit court courtroom. Photos by David Stemple.

The Palmyra circuit courtroom was at capacity Tuesday (Nov. 20), broiling from the bodies of 100 people filling the seats, with even more spilling into aisles and the hallways.

“I realized it’s crowded tonight, the one thing I ask is that you not sit in the aisles in case we need to get out quickly – you can sit in the jury box, if you need to,” said County Administrator Steve Nichols.
The crowds gathered to hear the Board of Supervisors vote to approve a one-time supplemental funding of $300,000 for the Fluvanna County School System.
