Project Description:

The Cobbs Creek Reservoir project is a 1500-acre site located off of the James River. Roughly 4 million yards of dirt has been moved. The project entailed the main dam roughly 3800 ft, two smaller dams, Control Tower, and Pump Station at the James River. The reservoir will be a 14.8-billion-gallon regional water supply impoundment located in Cumberland County, Virginia that will augment the flow of the James River as needed.  Water will be pumped out of the reservoir and into the James River in the drier months, and it will be pulled from the James River into the reservoir in the wetter months.  The reservoir will help during drought or near drought conditions by providing extra water to the flow of the James River
