  • Protecting our Watershed | Rivanna Authorities
    of large industrial facilities Our water sources include the five reservoirs we manage Beaver Creek South Fork Rivanna River Ragged Mountain Sugar Hollow and Totier Creek This means we can carefully monitor and manage our water resources really tend our own garden We know the source by taking regular samples of our source water Of course there are uncontrollable events like weather and unfortunate litter bugs Tree limbs leaves deposits from wildlife or careless pet owners litter like plastic water bottles can and do on occasion end up in our reservoirs So the next question becomes how important is that for the quality of drinking water Treatment To remove pollutants from drinking water we use a multiple barrier approach to assure that the water that reaches the tap in homes and businesses is of the very highest quality and is safe for public health To maintain this standard it is very important that every single barrier work at optimum effectiveness and at the same time subsequent barriers back up earlier barriers when those earlier barriers do not act to perfection Those many barriers start with the forest floor surrounding the reservoir that acts as a natural filter through underbrush plants and trees If the City decides to allow pets at Ragged Mountain we believe that first pet owners should clean up after their pets However if someone fails to clean up the natural filter of the forest floor is likely to capture and treat pollutants from the pet deposit If a rare pollutant does break through to the reservoir the reservoir itself provides some purification through sunlight nutrient uptake by plants and settling of water Beyond the reservoir our water treatment plant has several other barriers that include powdered activated carbon treatment oxidation processes coagulation and further settling of water
