Palmyra Lock Cleanup
November 12, 2016
Begin at 9:00 am

The lock is located behind the Fluvanna County Courthouse
at 72 Main Street, Palmyra, Virginia.

VC&NS past President, Mr. Brian Coffield, is planning a canal lock cleanup event at the Palmyra Lock on the Rivanna River. This is a great opportunity for members to be involved with an activity with the VC&NS by helping clean up this lock. Volunteers are needed and all help will be appreciated!
If you would like to bring a weedeater and/or chain saw, that would be appreciated. The outside wall is accessible only to tree climbers and we would like the assistance of at least one professional tree climber to help us clear that wall.
If there are any questions, please contact Brian Coffield 434-760-1183.

    Water Level Data at Cartersville – Sunday, June 26, 2016

    Cartersville River Level Data From Friday, June 24 to Sunday June 26, 2016

    Cartersville River Level Data
    From Friday, June 24 to Sunday June 26, 2016

    Wow, Look at the actual data on the above chart. See how the level changed from Friday to Saturday and then Sunday.

    This graph shows that the predictions from up-river of a big flush of water on the way were really accurate. Thanks to everyone for taking precautions ahead of this water.

    Photos above by Brian Coffield. Note that the photo on the upper left was at 1:00 PM., and the other three photos at 9:00 AM. Compare to the chart and you can see the difference in a light spot in the grass to compare the difference in the river levels.

    If you have photos of the high water you would like to share, please email to holt@batteau.org and I’ll post some here for everyone to see. Thank you.
