A nonprofit group says nearly 70% of the local streams don’t meet Virginia’s goals for water health. StreamWatch has released new figures for the Rivanna watershed, which covers Charlottesville, Albemarle, Fluvanna and Greene. StreamWatch director David Hannah (pictured, standing at microphone) says volunteers tested 45 local streams, and 14 are in good or very good shape. The group found 28 streams are in fair condition, and three are rated as poor or very poor.
