Lincoln-Lewis-Vannoy (LLV) System Improvements – Phase I

Project Number: WW-000001-026

Project Update: April 18, 2024

The project is in the construction phase. Construction contract awarding is under process.

Project Background

The Lincoln-Lewis-Vannoy community is served by a low-pressure sewer system originally installed in the 1980s. As the system has aged and the area has been developed there have been an increasing number of sewer main breaks in recent years.

Project Description

The intent of phase I of this project is to reduce system pressure and the risk of sewer main breaks. A review of the system determined a segment of 4-inch pipe between manhole MH 066-2-016 and a point where the flows from Lewis Park combine with the flows from Lincoln Park and Vannoy Acres has the highest consequence of failure. This phase will replace approximately 1,320 linear feet of 4-inch pipe along Braddock Road with two parallel 4-inch pipes to separate the Lincoln Park and Vannoy Acres flows from the Lewis Park flow. The project aims to minimize potential for odor generation at the sewer discharge point near the Hampton Forest Community. The project will also address odor control facility redundancy and reliability.

Project Location

The project is located on Braddock Road approximately between Crofton Green Drive and Willow School Road.

Project Phase

The project now is in the construction phase.

Project Benefits

The LLV System Phase I Improvements project will:

  • Alleviate system pressures;
  • Create redundancy in the system;
  • Reduce risk of sewer main breaks;
  • Provide more reliable odor control.


Design begins: Summer 2022
Design completes: Winter 2023
Construction begins: Spring 2024


Presentations to the Community

On August 9, 2023, we held a community meeting to discuss what to expect as we move into construction. Please see the presentation LLV System Improvements (Phase 1) Community Meeting - August 9, 2023.

What to Expect

The project will be awarded to a qualified contractor through a competitive bidding process once design efforts are completed. All work will be supervised by Fairfax County staff. Every effort will be made to minimize disturbances and impacts to public and private areas. Careful consideration will be given to schedule construction activities to minimize disruption in the community. There will be no disruption to the existing sanitary sewer service.

Project Cost and Funding Source

Construction of the first phase of the LLV System Improvements project is estimated at $2,100,000. Wastewater construction projects are funded through the County’s Capital Improvement Program.
