Public Hearing on Northern Virginia Regional Water Supply Plan
- City of Alexandria joins 21 communities in Northern Virginia to develop regional Water Supply Plan
- Public hearing to be held on Saturday, January 21, 2012
The City of Alexandria recently joined 21 communities in the Northern Virginia area to develop a regional Water Supply Plan. Local municipalities partnered with the Northern Virginia Regional Commission in developing a comprehensive plan, with detailed input and feedback from each community and jurisdiction.
The plan includes information about water sources, data on water use, water resource conditions, water management actions, analysis of alternatives and drought/contingency plans in the event of water deficits. The plan also includes water demand projections through 2040 and an assessment of water supply to meet these demands. The development of a Water Supply Plan is mandated by the Commonwealth of Virginia and a draft plan was submitted to the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality on November 2, 2011.
As part of the public outreach process each jurisdiction will hold a public hearing to receive additional comments and feedback from residents. A public hearing on the Water Supply Plan will be held on Saturday, January 21, 2012 at 9:30 a.m. in City Hall, 301 King Street, Council Chambers.
Residents may submit written comments to the T&ES Engineering Division:
