City of Alexandria, VA
Northern Virginia Regional Water Supply Plan
The City of Alexandria joined 21 other communities (cities, towns and counties) to develop a comprehensive WSP that encompasses all of Northern Virginia. The municipalities participating in the WSP decided that the Northern Virginia Regional Commission (NVRC) would take the lead in developing the WSP with input from each community. The plan developed by the NVRC includes information on water sources, water use, water resource conditions, water management actions, and an analysis of alternatives, drought and contingency plans in the event of water deficits. The plan also includes water supply projections through 2040. This plan was submitted to the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality is on November 2, 2011. A public meeting was held on October 24, 2011 to present information on the regulation and the regional WSP. A formal public hearing to present the play to City Council and members of the public for comment and to answer questions about the plan is currently scheduled for January 21. In addition, written comments will be received through February 4.
