After months of negotiations, teams from Charlottesville and Albemarle have come up with an agreement on sharing the cost of treating wastewater. The proposal will be sent to City Council and the Albemarle County Service Authority for final approval. The agreement has a formula for the price the city and county  will pay for wastewater treatment projects now and in the future. Some of those projects include the Rivanna Pump Station, upgrading the Moores Creek facility, and improvements to the Crozet Interceptor. City Council will hold a public hearing on the proposed agreement March 17th during the regular meeting that starts at 7 p.m. The ACSA Board of Directors will consider the agreement March 20th at 9 a.m. at 168 Spotnap Road. The agreement can be seen at www.charlottesville.org or www.serviceauthority.org.
