Quick update on last week’s post Easthom: Letâ€™s Revisit Lake Jordan.
Several weeks ago Chapel Hill approved an amendment to language of the 2001 Water and Sewer Management, Planning and Agreement (WSMPBA) which gave OWASA much more leeway in tapping OWASAâ€™s 5 million gallon per day (5Mg/d) allocation from Lake Jordan. At that time there wasnâ€™t much sustained discussion of the long-term impacts or broader dimensions before adopting the amendment.
After midnight last Monday the Council decided to revisit the issue which creates an opportunity for more nuanced analysis and broader community input. That opportunity hasn’t been scheduled as of yet.
