Sugar Hollow Is Closed

A few pictures from this morning’s solo bike ride, too.

Here’s the press release

Following guidance from an Executive Order issued by the City Manager’s Office, and in coordination with Albemarle County, RWSA has closed access to the recreational area around the Sugar Hollow Reservoir. The Executive Order instructed Albemarle County to erect barriers in order to close the Sugar Hollow Reservoir recreational area to the public.

This is being done out of an abundance of caution, as visitors trying to access Sugar Hollow Reservoir recreational area have significantly increased in recent days. We are concerned that the increased visitation violates the CDC recommendations for social distancing of at least six-feet apart. Until further notice, only RWSA staff and emergency personnel will have access to the reservoir. Please stay away from this area at this time.
