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
