Page 268, line 6, strike "$65,814,280" and insert "$66,072,570".
Page 268, line 41, after "F", insert "1."
Page 268, after line 47, insert:
"2.  Included in the amounts provided for Dam Inventory, Evaluation and Classification, and Flood Plain Management is $258,290 for the improvement of a high hazard dam, which was originally constructed in 1960, in order to comply with a Special Order issued by the Director, Department of Conservation and Recreation, on June 24, 2011, and in order to meet dam safety requirements."

(This amendment provides for the rehabilitation of a high hazard, recreational use dam, that includes within its dam break inundation zone numerous residences, several rural roads, and U.S. 460. While the Department of Conservation and Recreation's staff report the dam is generally well maintained, the special order was based on an inadequate spillway. The requested amount would repair the spillway and permit the facility to comply with Virginia's dam safety regulations.)
