(This amendment provides $633,100 in the first year from the general fund to rehabilitate the Upper North River Watershed Dam Number 77 on Hearthstone Lake in Augusta County to meet current NRCS safety performance standards for a high hazard dam. The proposed project would provide sediment storage for another 68 years after construction and maintain the current level of flood protection downstream. The plan provides for raising the dam embankment by 2.6 feet with earthfill, widening the auxiliary spillway by 92 feet, constructing a splitter dike, and installing turn reinforcement mat for stability. It is anticipated that federal funds will be provided for the remaining $2.1 million of costs associated with the rehabilitation.)
