wetness unless the foundation drainage system of the
structure is designed by a licensed professional
engineer to assure a dry basement and preclude wet yards
and recirculation of collected water. Where possible,
all exterior foundation drainage systems shall be
designed to gravity daylight without assistance from
mechanical means. All discharged water (mechanical or
gravity) must be conveyed to the subdivision stormwater
collection system and discharged through the stormwater
management facilities. Drainage easements, where
necessary, shall be placed on the final plat. A note
shall be placed on the final plat stating, “Basements
are not recommended in mapping units 74A, 74B, and 78A.
Basements in these mapping units are subject to flooding
due to high seasonal water tables. Sump systems may run

PRIOR TO FINAL CONSTRUCTION PLAN APPROVAL, IT
SHALL BE AGREED THAT ALL DRAINFIELD AREAS ARE TO BE
SURROUNDED BY SAFETY FENCING AND NO CONSTRUCTION TRAFFIC
SHALL CROSS NOR SHALL LAND DISTURBANCE OCCUR IN THESE
AREAS. THE FENCING OF THESE AREAS IS TO BE VERIFIED BY
COUNTY STAFF BEFORE THE ISSUANCE OF THE LAND DISTURBING
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
