"Q. Out of the amounts appropriated for Dam Inventory, Evaluation and Classification and Flood Plain Management, $300,000 the second year from the general fund shall be provided for a rehabilitation of Lincolnshire Dam in the Town of Tazewell."


(This amendment provides $300,000 from the general fund in the second year to rehabilitate a dam in Tazewell. This would bring the dam in line with regulations outlined in the Virginia Administrative Code 4VAC50-20-280, Drain Replacements, and 4VA50-20-290, Life of the impounding structure. Specifically, the allocated funds would contribute to the replacement of the dam's bottom gate valve for the principal spillway riser. This action allows for the maintenance of the bottom drain gate in order to protect the lives of citizens working downstream in case of a potential dam failure.)
