News & Events

01.17.2017 SMOKE TEST Field crews from the Fauquier County Water and Sanitation Authority will conduct smoke testing in The Plains periodically from January through March 2017. Attached is a copy of the letter being sent to The Plains customers as well as frequently asked questions currently available on our website homepage under “Recent News” should anyone have any further questions. We will also notify the Fauquier County Fire Chief and The Plains Volunteer Fire Department daily of the work areas.

We will start by cleaning and smoke testing the sanitary sewers. Afterwards we are going to video camera the pipes and manholes to assess the existing condition. From there we will move on to another sanitary run to complete the same process until we finish inspection of all public gravity sewer in The Plains. We hope to finish this process by the end of March, which depends on weather and the condition of the existing sewer system. This information will assist us in determining the priority of upgrading sanitary sewer in The Plains to significantly reduce rain water from entering the system.

Please pass this information along to whoever necessary and let me know if you have any questions throughout this process.
