Do they not learn about aquatic wildlife and/or the riparian buffer? And, what effect will this have on contaminants in city tap water?

I'd love to see increased paving on the Rivanna Trail from the Riverview Park section and perhaps a pedestrian/cyclist bridge crossing the river in the same section.

Yes, let's pave paradise, and while we're at it put up a few parking lots for convenience. The UVA students will leave, but it will be harder to erase the effects of their stay.

There isn't a uva professor or student who has the brains or ability to improve on what nature has given us.....leave the river alone...

There won't be an effect on drinking water in Charlottesville, as the water source is far upstream from any of these "proposed" activities. I see lots of other serious consequences, however, and I agree that perhaps nature is the best architect, and the more "natural" the river can be left, the better all of us (not to mention the inhabitants of the river) will be.
