Client project details

Fauquier County Water & Sanitation Authority, VA (Countywide Resource Management)

The Project

EGGI was selected jointly by the County of Fauquier and Fauquier County Water & Sanitation Authority (FCWSA) (after a qualifications review of 15 firms) to conduct a Countywide groundwater investigation. The objective of the groundwater study was to assess the availability and protectability of new sources of groundwater from bedrock aquifers within specific County-designated areas.  New water sources developed would replace existing supplies currently servicing the FCWSA. The County had struggled for nearly 20 years with insufficient water supplies and lack of a groundwater development plan.

EGGI’s work with the County and the FCWSA continues to be very successful.  EGGI has received many accolades from both the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors and FCWSA.  Information gained from these groundwater investigations has been incorporated into the County’s revision of FCWSA’s Comprehensive Master Plan, as well as their overall Water Utility Plan.

 

Status/Results:

EGGI’s investigation has resulted in the identification of over 2.5 MGD of new water sources from fractured bedrock aquifers to serve the needs of the FCWSA.  Individual wells drilled in fractured bedrock aquifers have yielded as much as 350 gpm. Unlike regional surface supplies, severe drought conditions experienced in northern Virginia during the past decade have not adversely impacted the groundwater sources developed by EGGI for the FCWSA. Furthermore, policy standards for the development of individual subdivision water supplies were prepared by EGGI and are currently being used by the Fauquier County Planning Agencies.  EGGI has successfully worked for both the County and the Fauquier County Water & Sanitation Authority for the past 20+ years.

EGGI has provided professional groundwater investigation services to the FCWSA in the following Project areas: New Baltimore, Turnbull, Bealeton, Opal, The Plains, Paris, and Remington.
