Wastewater Management (WWM) does more than just clean dirty water. Employees from all WWM divisions work toward pollution prevention and continuous improvement focused on maintaining our wastewater infrastructure, a critical asset to Fairfax County, and protecting human health and the environment. The "Flushed the Journey of Wastewater" video series highlights some of the programs and systems where dedicated wastewater employees work to enhance the quality of life for those that live, work or visit Fairfax County.

Fairfax County’s mechanics are dedicated to keeping the Noman M. Cole advanced wastewater treatment systems running smoothly to provide clean water for our environment. By carefully planning ahead and preparing for the unexpected, our mechanics support a critical asset to Fairfax County.
