This is certainly newsworthy.  The Fredericksburg Free Lance Star has reported that a one hundred foot section of the Embrey dam on the Rappahannock will be blasted (yes, detonated, demolished) on 02/23. The rain date is the 27th.  The January eighteenth edition of the FLS reported this. I hear their web site offers info on the time, parking, dignitaries/ guests, etcetera.  If the timing is right to include this as a web page update (or send it out via FFV digest) you may gather more facts at  www.fredericksburg.com.

Embrey Dam to fall in February

Saying goodbye to Embrey Dam
