The Fauquier County Water and Sanitation Authority’s (FCWSA) mission is to provide quality, reliable water and wastewater services in an environmentally responsible and sustainable manner. Residential customers please click here and for our commercial customers please click here.
Town of Remington Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation
The Authority initiated a comprehensive study of the Infiltration and Inflow (I&I) problems experienced in the wastewater collection system of the Remington Wastewater Treatment Plant, which includes Town of Remington, Bealeton, and Opal service districts. Based on the study, downtown Remington was identified as an area with the highest I&I and very rapid response to storm events suggesting that there were direct sources of inflow to the sanitary sewer system. When groundwater and stormwater enter the Authority’s sanitary sewer collection system, known as I&I, wastewater treatment facilities become less efficient and systems become strained. Also since all water entering a wastewater treatment facility must be treated as wastewater, the operational costs increase proportional to the amount of clean water entering the sanitary sewer system due to I&I.
Septic Hauler Restrictions
The Remington Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) is experiencing an upset due to abnormally high levels of septage received at the WWTP. Effective Monday, July 19, 2021, the FCWSA will not accept any hauled waste generated outside of Fauquier County. Click here for additional details.
Rate Increase Effective July 1, 2021
The FCWSA Board is proposing to complete our five-year rate plan with a 3% increase in user rates effective July 1, 2021. This increase does not involve a change from the previous rate plan in any way; it merely defers the 3% user rate increase from last July to July 1, 2021. For more details click here
