"S. Out of the appropriation in this item, the department shall provide $1,500,000 to the City of Lynchburg from the general fund for reimbursement for lakebed stabilization, sediment removal, wetland creation, dam safety improvements, stream flow improvements, and other related costs in the College Lake watershed.  The amount shall be matched by a local appropriation of at least $1,500,000 prior to disbursement."


(This amendment provides $1.5 million from the general fund to the City of Lynchburg to assist in sediment removal and other improvements to College Lake, a central stormwater basin in the City which suffered significant damage in an approximately six inch rainfall event and ensuing floor. Damage from the August 2018 rainfall event cost the City of Lynchburg more than $30.0 million.)
