"In addition, out of these amounts, $100,000 in the second year from the general fund shall be used to hire an independent engineering firm to conduct a study to find a less costly solution to rehabilitate the Cherrystone and Roaring Fork Dams.  The department shall assist the three project sponsors, the town of Chatham, Pittsylvania County and the Pittsylvania Soil and Water Conservation District in this effort."


(This amendment provides $100,000 the second year to help find alternate solutions for the required rehabilitation of the Cherrystone and Roaring Fork dams. The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service presented a plan to the sponsors for the purpose of rehabilitating the two dams costing $20.0 million. The sponsors seek an independent study for a less costly solution, as recommended by the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation.)
