Quality of Water = Quality of Life

Wastewater Management provides safe, high-quality wastewater conveyance, advanced wastewater treatment, environmental monitoring, and wastewater reuse to protect public health, aquatic life, and the environment in Fairfax County.

Fairfax County Wastewater Management consists of a sophisticated network of pipes, pumps, flow-metering stations, tanks, retention ponds, buildings, motors, and sensors that make up the collection and treatment processes. This video takes you through the various treatment processes used at the Noman M. Cole, Jr., Pollution Control Plant and described how each step helps move our water one step closer to final treated wastewater that can be returned to local rivers and streams.
