Eco-City Clean Waterways is the City's initiative to manage the quality of our local streams, the Potomac River, and the Chesapeake Bay. Because good stewardship of our local waterways yields many public health, ecological, and recreational benefits, it is one of the guiding principles of our Eco-City Alexandria Charter and a priority for the City under the Eco-City Alexandria initiative.
Eco-City Clean Waterways affirms the City's commitment to promoting and protecting clean waterways for current and future generations of Alexandria residents by operating and maintaining two types of sewer systems, which discharge to our waterways through permitted outfalls for combined sewage, stormwater, and treated sanitary sewage.
Combined Sewer System Long Term Control Plan Update
The City of Alexandria is on track to comply with a 2017 state law requiring that remediation of its four combined sewer outfalls be completed by July 1, 2025. As part of the process, the City is required to update the Long Term Control Plan, which includes an implementation schedule to meet the 2025 deadline, to be filed with the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality.
