Topic:   

A Resolution Authorizing the County Administrator to Execute an Agreement with the Fauquier County Water and Sanitation Authority to Fund the Engineering of the Necessary Improvements to the Vint Hill Sewage Treatment Plant

 

Topic Description: 

Currently the Vint Hill Sewage Treatment Plant, which services the New Baltimore Service District and Vint Hill, has a permitted capacity of 0.60 mgd.  The current permit includes authorization to expand the plant to 0.95 mgd.  The current Comprehensive Plan for the New Baltimore Service District assumes that the plant will be expanded to 0.95 mgd.  Under the new regulations from the Department of Environmental Quality, an expansion of a plant must receive a Certificate to Operate by December 31, 2010.  The Water and Sanitation Authority (WSA) has stated that it must begin engineering for any expansion not later than the end of Summer 2007.  It is currently negotiating with the Vint Hill Economic Development Authority and other private entities for the funds necessary to engineer the plant expansion and the construction of the plant.  At the present time the WSA does not have firm commitments for either engineering or the construction, but must begin engineering the plant expansion now in order to meet the December 31, 2010 deadline.  The WSA has requested that Fauquier County advance the funds necessary to complete the engineering of the plant expansion, subject to repayment, if other entities determine to contribute or through payment of tap fees.
