(This amendment provides a one-time grant of $5.0 million from the General Fund to the City of Lynchburg to match local funding for sediment removal and other improvements to the College Lake, a central stormwater basin in the City, which suffered significant damage in a severe rainfall event in August 2018. Damage from the rainfall event cost the City of Lynchburg more than $30 million. Funding for the grant is transferred from the proposed supplemental deposit to the Water Quality Improvement Fund included in the introduced Senate Bill 1100.)
