A Resolution to Authorize an Agreement with Fauquier County Water and Sanitation Authority (WSA) to Operate School Wastewater Treatment Systems


Topic Description:

The Department of General Services maintains the water and wastewater systems at school sites that are not served by a public utility.  The operations and procedures require certified staff and the ability to meet Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) guidelines.  The General Services employee who was certified to operate the wastewater treatment systems at Mary Walter Elementary School and H. M. Pearson Elementary School has transitioned to other employment.  In seeking to provide this service it was determined to be more effective to contract with WSA for this service rather than rely on a single certified employee of the Department of General Services.


WSA has agreed to provide this service and the operations agreement is attached.


Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.


Financial Impacts Analysis:

The maximum operating cost for this service is $46,000 per year.  Maintenance is authorized up to $500 per repair.  WSA will prepare a maintenance and improvement plan for the County’s consideration.  Funds are available within the General Services budget.
