Ragged Dam feasibility study

The firm was hired by the City of Charlottesville in June 2010 to conduct a feasibility study on repairing and adding on to the Lower Ragged Mountain Dam[1]. The report indicated that it is feasible to do so without significantly lowering water levels. [2]. The city paid Black & Veatch $250,000 [3] for the work, but the plan was abandoned after council agreed in February 2011 to proceed with an earthen dam. [4]
