Water Reuse


lawn sprinklerFairfax County created a program to reuse treated wastewater. This water can be safely used to water lawns, in commercial car washing businesses, in construction and other industrial uses. By reusing water, we save drinking water and prevent pollutants such as nitrogen and phosphorous from entering our rivers and streams.

Reclaimed Water Pipe
Wherever you see purple pipes, recycled water is used.

The Water Reuse Project uses clean wastewater from the Noman M. Cole Jr., Pollution Control Plant for irrigation and industrial purposes. A pipeline was installed from the Noman M. Cole Jr., Pollution Control Plant in Lorton to: Covanta Fairfax, Inc. Resource Recovery Plant, the Laurel Hill Golf Course and south county ball fields.
