Say Thanks to Louisa County Supervisors Who Voted to Protect Lake Anna
On October 17, 2005, the Louisa County, Virginia, Board of Supervisors voted on a resolution that would have supported using air instead of water from Lake Anna to cool any new reactors built at Dominion's North Anna nuclear station in central Virginia. New nuclear reactors, if they use millions of gallons of lake water for cooling, could raise lake temperature, lower lake levels, and reduce the flow downstream, which will affect human use and natural ecosystems alike.
While the resolution failed 5-2, the two supervisors that voted to protect the lake deserve some thanks. Send a thank you message to Supervisors Allen Jennings and Willie Gentry by using the form below.
