Water Reuse Project

Announcements and Information

  • Lorton Road reopening the afternoon of Aug. 12:
    The installation of the water reuse pipe along Lorton Road has been completed.

  • The proposed Water Reuse Project will use reclaimed water from the Noman M. Cole Jr. Pollution Control Plant for irrigation and process purposes. Specifically, it  involves the installation of a pipeline from the Noman M. Cole Jr., Pollution Control Plant on Route 1, in Lorton, to Covanta Fairfax, Inc. Resource Recovery Plant, Laurel Hill Golf Course, as well as other sites in the county.

  • 560 million gallons of treated reused/reclaimed effluent waters will be directed to the Covanta Fairfax Inc. Energy Resource Recovery Facility.

  • 24 million gallons of water will be allocated to both the Laurel Hill Golf Course and the Lower Potomac Ball Fields for irrigation purposes.

  • 5 miles of pipeline will be installed, as well as associated pumps and an elevated water storage tank at Covanta Fairfax Inc. Resource Recovery Plant to store 500,000 gallons of reclaimed water.

  • Currently, the Covanta plant utilizes potable drinking water for the majority of their process and cooling water. This project will allow Covanta to utilize reused/reclaimed treated effluent from the NCPCP that would otherwise be discharged to Pohick Creek.

  • The project received $6.5 million in federal stimulus funds through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act through the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality Clean Water Revolving Fund Loan Program.

  • This project has undergone substantial coordination with the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality as well as other local, state and federal agencies.
