Community Systems

What Are Community Systems? 
Community Water and Wastewater Systems are free standing water and wastewater systems whereby water may be supplied to a rural village or hamlet by its own community well and wastewater may be treated in the village/hamlets by the village's own packaged treatment facility. Highly treated wastewater (effluent) is discharged in most cases on site or, in a few cases, to local streams/rivers. Community system capacities are limited in nature and may not be designed to provide all of the amenities offered by the central system, such as fire flow and lawn watering. Such amenities would be cost prohibitive and/or unsustainable for these financially self-supporting, rural groundwater systems. Your water systems must be managed prudently. To that end, each Community has a permitted capacity that should not be exceeded. The permitted capacity for each Community works out to approximately 500 gallons per day per house (some systems are slightly higher, some are slightly lower). The median daily winter water use (water use inside the home) of all of our Community Systems customers is approximately 170 gallons per day. Following the target daily use of 500 gallons per day, per home to meet permitted capacity, leaves approximately 330 gallons of water for lawn watering. For that reason, Loudoun Water recommends against landscapes with high water requirements in Community Systems.
