"L. Out of the amounts provided for this item, $85,000 the first year from the general fund is provided to match a federal grant from the U.S. Geological Survey to sample and gather data necessary to compute the annual loads of nitrogen, phosphorus, and sediment from two rivers draining Augusta County and to generate the requisite data for these annual loads of nitrogen, phosphorus, and sediment for use in the Chesapeake Bay Model, and to more accurately compile this data for remediation purposes."

(This amendment provides general fund dollars to the Department of Conservation and Recreation to match a U.S. Geological Survey grant sampling and gathering data on nitrogen, phosphorus, and sediment loadings in two rivers draining Augusta County. The data produced from this effort will be used to generate requisite data for use in the Chesapeake Bay Model and to determine what subsequent remediation may be necessary.)
