UVa Not Shutting Down for Drought

UVa Provost Gene Block e-mailed all staff, faculty and students yesterday to dispel the rumor that UVa will be closing on November 30th due to the drought, saying that the school has no such plans. Water usage at the school, which is the largest consumer of water in the area, has dropped just 7% in the past week. The school is now considering implementing rolling brown-outs to cut down water usage, spurred on by Charlottesville’s $500,000 hike in the school’s water costs. Martin Olivier has the story in today’s Cavalier Daily.
