Broad Run Water Reclamation Facility
Broad Run Water Reclamation Facility (Broad Run) was constructed to accommodate future growth and to reduce loading to DC Water’s Blue Plains Treatment Plant (Blue Plains). The BRWRF was first opened in 2008 and currently treats about 8 million gallons per day (MGD) of sewage with a total current capacity of 11 MGD. Of the 8 MGD that is currently treated, about 1 MGD is distributed back to Loudoun Water customers as reclaimed water.
Wastewater is treated at Broad Run to a high degree using preliminary and primary treatment, secondary/biological treatment, ultra-filtration, and ultraviolet radiation for disinfection. Solids handling processes include combined primary and waste activated solids thickening, aerobic digestion, and dewatering.
Highly treated effluent is released into nearby waterways. The system also allows wastewater to become reclaimed water, which can be reused for non-potable purposes. In 2019, Loudoun Water delivered 640 million gallons of reclaimed water to its customers. Visit our Reclaimed Water Program page to read more about the program.
Broad Run is currently planning future upgrades and expansions to allow Loudoun Water to serve future growth while meeting the stringent regulatory requirements associated with the Dulles Area Watershed Policy and Chesapeake Bay protection goals.
Trap Rock Water Treatment Facility
Loudoun Water’s secure, state-of-the-art Trap Rock Water Treatment Facility, located in Leesburg, is designed to meet or exceed drinking water regulations to ensure that you have the highest quality drinking water available today – and for years to come.
Trap Rock Water Treatment Facility officially opened in May 2019 and was designed to be expandable and the processes scalable to meet the future demand of the rapidly growing community. Beyond providing safe, clean drinking water, the Trap Rock Water Treatment Facility features attractive architecture that was constructed using low-impact development principles. Sustainable materials, technologies and management practices were used to design the administration building of Trap Rock Water Treatment Facility for LEED certification.
Loudoun Water took an overall low-impact development approach to building and construction by utilizing recycled building materials, establishing rain gardens to capture storm water, and by incorporating an ultra-efficient HVAC system. The Trap Rock Water Treatment Facility is part of the Potomac Water Supply Program.
Potomac River Water Pumping Station
Loudoun Water's Potomac River Water Intake leverages state-of-the-art technology and a hydraulically-modeled operating system to sustainably secure Loudoun County's water supply for generations.

Goose Creek Water Treatment Facility
In 2014, Goose Creek Water Treatment Facility was purchased from the City of Fairfax. The treatment facility underwent numerous upgrades and renovations to ensure the quality of water provided to customers.
Loudoun Water customers receive water from Goose Creek which comes from Beaverdam Creek Reservoir and Goose Creek Reservoir. Beaverdam Creek Reservoir fills Goose Creek Reservoir when water levels get lo and vice versa. This water is fully treated by Loudoun Water.
Currently this facility is a 12 million gallon per day treatment facility. The Goose Creek Water Treatment Facility will remain in service until the Trap Rock Water Treatment Facility is brought online.
