MACC Satellite “Our Lake Anna public monitoring system has been called the best in the state. With the help of volunteers, DEQ, and the counties in funding the program, we will continue to track the health of Lake Anna waters,” Smith told L&T. It is interesting to note that Louisa County denied LACA funding for the 2018-19 fiscal year beginning in July. Smith told L&T LACA uses these funds LKA 540. 894 0706 to pay for the lab work associated with water quality testing. Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria nor mally live in the intestines of healthy people and animals. Most varieties of E. coli are harmless or cause relatively brief diarrhea. But a few particularly nasty strains, such as E. coli O157:H7, can cause severe abdominal cramps, bloody diarrhea and vomiting. continued from page 7 Roundabout Update types of crashes that result in injury or loss of life. Roundabouts are designed to im- prove safety for all users, including pedestrians and bicycles.  Most signifi- cantly, roundabouts REDUCE the types of crashes where people are seriously hurt or killed by 78-82% when com- pared to conventional stop-controlled and signalized intersections, per the AASHTO Highway Safety Manual.  When is the next time for public com- ment on the project? As project development begins later this year, VDOT will begin to seek pub- lic input about the project. Citizen Infor- mation Meetings followed by a formal Public Hearing will be scheduled later in 2019, Construction is anticipated to begin in late 2021 based on the current delivery schedule. What will you do with the entrance to Dickinson’s Store on Rt. 208? During the Preliminary Engineering phase of the project, VDOT will en- gage each impacted property owner to ensure the ultimate project solution provides safe entrance and exit to their property and businesses, and accom- modates their needs to the extent pos- sible.  In the three counties administered by VDOT’s Louisa Residency Office (Fluvanna, Louisa, and Orange), VDOT recently completed a roundabout in Fluvanna Co. (Route 15/53 intersec- tion), and has roundabouts in the de- velopment phase in Louisa Co. (inter- sections at Routes 208/522 and Routes 250/522), and Orange Co. (Route 20/231 intersection).  For each of these projects, VDOT has and will continue to engage prop- erty owners and the public in each step of the project development and deliv- ery process to ensure the final project meets the collective goals of all project stakeholders to improve safety at this critical intersection.   Duane Adams is the Louisa County Supervisor for Mineral District, where the roundabout is planned. He sees some flaws in the process and is con- cerned about cost of the roundabout. “The need for improvement at Wares Crossroads is certainly there and I’m glad to see VDOT taking action. “I have heard from many citizens and businesses who feel left out of the pro- cess. I would like to see VDOT take into consideration the concerns of local citi- zens and businesses during the public comment period. “I’m not convinced a $5.5 million roundabout is the right solution for this intersection.” LKA Water quality re-testing performed on May 15 revealed most of the high E.Coli levels had dropped below advisory levels.
