Water & Wastewater Program Background
After the recognition of the need for a detailed, systematic approach to solve existing and potential future water and wastewater problems in the county, the Board of Supervisors directed staff to complete a plan to address these issues.
In 2011, the Water and Wastewater Needs Assessment (PDF) Opens a New Window. was completed, which included recommendations in the areas of planning, policy, and implementation. The purpose of the assessment was to provide an overview of existing water and wastewater issues in the county and to identify communities with potential water and wastewater needs.
On December 5, 2012, the Board of Supervisors approved the development of a Water and Wastewater Needs Assessment Implementation Work Plan (PDF) Opens a New Window. . The work plan built on the 2011 assessment by systematically developing relationships, policies, and procedures that were necessary to address identified water and wastewater issues. The final work plan was approved on June 3, 2015.
Products of the Plan
The Water and Wastewater Needs Assessment Community Prioritization Manual (PDF) Opens a New Window. and Recommended Water and Wastewater Projects Funding Policy (PDF) Opens a New Window. were products of the work plan. These documents helped to establish a method for gathering requests from communities in need of assistance from the county, and established procedures that the county would follow in providing support to communities that have been prioritized.
The Loudoun County Water and Wastewater Program will accept applications (PDF) Opens a New Window. for county assistance with community water and wastewater projects from January 1 to March 31, 2019.
