Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority board members are working on ways to maintain water supply to the northern parts of the county.
Members discussed on Monday, a project to replace an old pipeline that connects the South Fork Water Treatment Plant next to the South Fork Reservoir, with the northern end of the county. This was all done as a precaution for possible future problems.
"In order to make sure that we have service during any potential possibility of something going wrong at a particular location we want a strong pipeline to interconnect those two areas," said Executive Director Tom Frederick of the Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority.
This improvement would also require the construction of a pumping station.
Frederick also said the RWSA board members are looking at the Hollymead area as a possible site.
