Topic:  A Resolution to Continue the Frytown Water Project

Topic Description:

The Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution on June 18, 2001 to continue water monitoring and the provision of filtering or bottled water to a number of homes.  A subcommittee formed by the Public Safety Committee has begun work to determine if there is a more permanent solution to the problem.  The committee was chaired by Joe Winkelmann and involves a neighborhood representative, staff and representatives from the Health Department,  Department of Environmental Quality, and the Town of Warrenton.  Utilizing the initial appropriation, we are continuing to monitor the wells at six residences, provide a filtration system at three residences, and provide bottled water for three residences.  The committee is considering the installation of new wells or connection to a public water system as a long-term solution.  Additional time is required to develop this long-term plan.

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.

Financial Impacts Analysis:

Funds are available from the appropriation previously approved by the Board for this purpose.  Currently, a balance of approximately $45,000 remains in the account.
