Supervisors reverse course by approving James River water project

After hours of debate, apologies, and passionate speeches from the public, the Fluvanna County Board of Supervisors reversed its position on the James River water project by unanimously voting Wednesday night (Jan. 20) to approve the two special use permits associated with the project.

In doing so, supervisors may have freed Fluvanna from two lawsuits – one for $40 million – that hinge upon the Board’s Dec. 2 denial of the two permits.
