County Zoning Ordinance, Residential Subdivisions, a
landscape plan will be required at the construction drawing
The springs and streams should be protected to the
maximum extent possible. The drainage area from the north
side of I-66 exceeds 100 acres. This will generate a
substantial amount of runoff draining through the site.
Easements shall be provided and houses shall be kept above
the 10-year water surface elevations of the streams.
All culverts shall be designed to pass the 10-year
storm with 18 inches of the freeboard to the edge of
Entrance locations shall meet VDOT standards for
separation and design.
The location of erosion and sediment controls shall
be shown on the final construction plans and meet the
requirements of the John Marshall Soil & Water Conservation
Right-of-way lines, width, centerline, limits of
construction, and pavement width shall be shown on the final
construction plans. This would include the existing street
that the subdivision borders and is not intended for new or
proposed streets only.
The applicant shall obtain Health Department approval
for all drainfield and well sites.
A Type I Soil Map (1” = 400’) was conducted on this
parcel on December 19, 2002 by the County Soil Scientist’s
Office, which shall be addressed on the final construction
A Virginia Certified Professional Soil Scientist
(CPSS) shall adjust the preliminary soil map with revisions
onto the final construction plan. This needs to be done in
the field and checked for any additional soils information
to be added to the final construction plan.
A signature block shall be placed on the Final Soil
Map sheet for the CPSS to sign which states:

Interpretive information from the Type I soil report
for each mapping unit shown on the above final construction
plan shall be placed on the same sheet as the soil map.
Also a Symbols Legend shall be placed on the final
construction plan to identify spot symbols (the symbols
legend shown on this submission has an incorrect ditch
symbol and needs to match the soil map ditch symbol).

front office of Community Development: "The County
recommends that no below grade basements be constructed on
soil mapping units 9B & 181B due to wetness unless the
foundation drainage system of the structure is designed by a
Virginia Licensed Professional Engineer. The foundation
drainlines should be daylighted for gravity flow on all
The soils where the drainfields are proposed shall
not be disturbed during construction. The following
statement needs to be put on the final construction plan:
"Before a home is started the builder needs to mark the
drainfield area off and not disturb it during
construction." The type of primary and reserve drainfield
area shall be stated for each lot.
The following statement shall be placed on the final
construction plan: “Foundations placed in soil mapping
units that show a moderate, high, or very high shrink-swell
potential in the most recent Interpretive Guide to the
Soils of Fauquier County, Virginia
will require a geotechnical evaluation in order to determine
Areas of steep slopes shall be avoided at all cost
due to high erosion hazard. Proper Erosion and Sediment
Control practices shall be installed before construction
begins. Soil mapping unit 83D should be left in its natural
