The Schenks Branch Interceptor is a terra cotta [1] pipeline 21 inches in diameter owned by the Rivanna Water and Sewer Authority that carries wastewater through the Schhenks Branch Basin. The RWSA is working on plans to replace the pipe with a 30 inch ductile iron pipe. [2].

The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality has ordered the RWSA and the City of Charlottesville to submit a plan for how it will be upgraded. The plan is to relocate the line in 5 segments.
