The Effective Water Storage Improvement Project plans to improve the Town’s effective water storage and to ensure compliance with Virginia Department of Health guidelines. Effective water storage is the amount of water stored for everyday use that can also be used during emergencies without interrupting water service.
There were three phases to the Effective Water Storage Improvement Project.
Phase I included construction of a six-inch waterline and a small water pumping station near Diana Drive. Residential water service lines were connected to the new system. This will help improve effective water storage in the most cost-effective manner. Phase I was approved in the F.Y. 2012-13 annual budget at an estimated cost of $350,000.
Phase II of this project included reconstructing a small water pumping station along Wall Street.
Phase III of this project included construction of a small water pumping station near the Town’s southern corporate limits and Interstate 81.
