Lake

 Tom Ellis made this map of the Lake showing the current bulkhead at  Beach 4 and the route (in blue) the dump truck takes to Tufton Lake to dump the sludge. The red line shows the route the truck would have to take from the proposed bulkhead on Beach 2.

A group of homeowners at Lake Monticello protest the decision of the Lake Monticello Owners’ Association (LMOA) to build a concrete docking point for the dredge barge at Jefferson Cove (Beach 2). They’ve written letters, spoken at LMOA meetings, taken pictures, and tracked truck and barge routes to demonstrate their point that the proposed bulkhead is an unnecessary expense that will kill the view, disrupt fish spawning areas, and endanger swimmers. One of those speaking out is Tom Ellis, a retired engineer who for years served on the LMOA Storm Water Management Committee. “Most people consider Beach 2 the prettiest beach of the five beaches,” Ellis said.

All seven of the residents who spoke urged the Board to keep land use in place in its current form. Land use, which gives significant tax breaks to land owners who dedicate their properties to farming, forestry, or open space, has come under the microscope in recent months.An eighth resident, Channing Snoddy, vice president of the Fluvanna Farm Bureau, sparred with Supervisor Tony O’Brien during the work session. O’Brien has been the driving force in the recent call to examine how land use is applied in Fluvanna.
