On Wednesday, September 26, 2018, the Office of Audit and Compliance, together with Records Management and the President's Office, cleared the recently-flooded Old Mills Trail in Charlottesville, VA as a part of the annual United Way Day of Caring. Work included cutting down dead trees, weeding overgrown areas surrounding the trail, and cleaning up trash that had been washed in by floodwaters.
