Expert Encourages A New Way Of Thinking Water Challenges

Water officials from Lynchburg; Bedford and Amherst counties were among others on Saturday discussing challenges that come in making sure they use their resources wisely. According to one expert that attended the Water Summit, Lynchburg is “relatively water wealthy”. With the Pedlar Reservoir in Amherst County as its main source and the James River as a steady backup — the speaker highlighted the challenges that come in making sure resources are used wisely; and urged localities to look at the water in terms of protecting its quality; such as replacing old infrastructure in order to maintain water service for another 100 years.
