Zion Crossroads water back on track

The Fluvanna County Board of Supervisors plunged ahead with water at Zion Crossroads at its meeting Wednesday night (Dec. 16) by reversing a vote from two weeks earlier that put the project on hold.

The water project will draw up to 75,000 gallons per day of treated water from the Department of Corrections (DOC) facility on Rt. 250 and pipe it to the intersection of Rt. 250 and Rt. 15 at Zion Crossroads.  It will also take between 100,000 and 125,000 gallons per day of sewage back to the DOC to be treated.
