Waterford Water Project

About the Project 

  • To address ongoing water supply issues in the village of Waterford, residents submitted an application in 2019 to the county's Water and Wastewater Program
  • As part of this program, Loudoun Water completed the Waterford Water Feasibility Study (PDF) in March 2022, which evaluated concerns identified in the application and determined the technical feasibility of potential solutions to the community’s drinking water concerns. 
  • In May 2022, following completion of the study, county staff presented the results and responded to questions from the community.
  • The feasibility study determined these preferred options: 
    • Option 2, Shared Private Wells – Connecting two or more homes to a private well. This option is limited to residential homes following guidelines set by the Loudoun County Health Department. Each shared well system would require an existing or new well capable of providing greater than 8 gallons per minute yield to serve up to four parcels, with costs divided by the connected homes. Challenges include maintenance agreements, easements and building restrictions. 
    • Option 3, Community Water System –  A new communal well system and treatment facility along with a community water distribution system. Wells and the treatment facility would be located in or around the existing Waterford community, pending further hydrogeologic investigation. This option would require that a well or several wells be sited to meet the potential future demand of the community. The community water system would be owned and operated by Loudoun Water.
