It’s not about water

Adding to Fluvanna’s $100,000,000 deficit by spending millions more certainly isn’t going to lower the tax burden on the homeowner.
According to the Nov. 19 Fluvanna Review article, “Businesses overwhelmingly support water projects.” I would voice the following concerns. Members of the chamber of commerce don’t have to be residents of, or have businesses in, Fluvanna. Fifty-nine people is hardly a representative sample of a 25,961 person county or for that matter of the 220 members of the chamber itself. The chamber of commerce is also linked to member(s) of county governance favoring the project. The title would be more accurate if it were, “The chamber of commerce (under)whelmingly supports water projects.”
If the right to purchase 400,000 gallons of water per day at Louisa County’s then commercial rate “will satisfy Fluvanna’s water needs for decades to come,” why spend millions constructing an intake, pumping station and pipeline designed to remove 12,000,000 gallons per day from the James River?
I don’t think this is about water at all. I think it is about establishing a utility through-way across historic rural Fluvanna. The people aren’t going to have it.
