County monitoring water supply after oil spill in Lynchburg

No local impact exepcted, officials say
UPDATE: May 1, 3:55 P.M. – Henrico officials today said that they are taking a number of precautionary measures to protect the county's water supply, following yesterday's Lynchburg derailment of a train carrying crude oil, some of which spilled into the James River.

County officials anticipate that the oil could flow into the region after 6 p.m. today, based on estimates from state agencies and CSX. Officials emphasized there continues to be no indication the oil will enter the county’s water supply.

Assistant Director of Public Utilities William Mawyer said the county’s intake was 10 feet below the level of the James River yesterday, a depth that should allow any oil to pass over. If necessary, the county is prepared to close the intake temporarily. > Read more.
