The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors presented the Lawrence V. Fowler Award to Bill G. Evans at its meeting today. The award recognizes the distinguished service of a longstanding member of a Fairfax County board, authority, commission or committee (BAC) whose exceptional service contributed to the overall quality of life in the community.

Selected from among distinguished members of BACs who are dedicated to public service, Evans has been the Mount Vernon District representative on the Fairfax County Water Authority (Fairfax Water) Board since 1970. Early in his tenure, Evans’ influence and leadership was critical in the consolidation of all of Fairfax Water’s administrative and engineering employees under one roof.  He has been an instrumental leader in shaping water policy for Northern Virginia.Working closely with the Virginia State Water Control Board, Evans played a key role in negotiating the adoption of the Occoquan Policy that establishes key source water protections for the Occoquan Reservoir.  

Evans played a key role in the development of Fairfax Water’s rate policy of growth pays for growth, recommending the policy to the Fairfax Water board. The policy requires availability charges be paid to cover the cost of supplying new customers, relieving existing customers from this burden. This policy was later adopted by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors for the sewer system expansion.

The Lawrence V. Fowler Award (PDF) was established to honor the accomplishments of Fowler, who served for 41 years on the Consumer Protection Commission and its predecessor. Fowler set the bar for exceptional and long-term volunteer service for Fairfax County Government. To be considered for the award, individuals must have served on a county BAC for at least 10 years demonstrating exceptional service contributing to the overall quality of life in the community.
