Newport News Waterworks line

WNPR is working with Newport News Waterworks to coordinate rescues along the length of a new 24-inch-diameter waterline running between Hubbard Lane and Mooretown Road, in York County. Most of the line runs along existing right-of-way, not expected to yield much in the way of rescue-worthy plants. However, part of the line's path goes through a wilder, swampy area, which sounds promising.

Site work is not expected until early 2013, so the team is hoping to survey and begin rescues in the spring, continuing through the summer and fall as available and appropriate.
