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. Most Loudoun Water customers are connected to the Central System.
The annual spring hydrant flushing for Community systems schedule for 2019:
- Creighton Farms April 1 – 5
- Rokeby Farms April 8 – 12
- Beacon Hill April 15 -19
- Selma and Raspberry April 29 – May 10

Our Community Systems:
Water is supplied to selected Beacon Hill hamlets by two community wells. Water is treated with disinfectant and an oxidant and filtered to remove any impurities and assure water quality does not degrade in the distribution system. The system includes a storage tank to help meet the demands of peak-use periods.
Water is supplied to Courtland Rural Village from Loudoun Water's central system, which serves eastern Loudoun County. Wastewater will be collected and treated to a high degree at the community's own wastewater treatment plant. Here, most organic material and nutrients will be removed through biological treatment before being disinfected and stored in a holding pond prior to discharge on several spray irrigation fields in the development. Access to these fields will be restricted, as the irrigation system may start on a timer and starts without prior warning.
Loudoun Water has joined the separate water distribution systems serving the Raspberry Falls and Selma Estates communities into one single system. Water is supplied to the Raspberry Falls and Selma Estates by a combination of seven wells between the two communities. The existing Raspberry Falls water treatment facility was converted into a raw water booster pump station to assist in providing for the water needs of both communities. Water is filtered through a membrane filtration system, granular activated carbon filters, and ultra violet disinfection and treated with disinfectants. The disinfectants aid in assuring that water quality does not degrade in the distribution system. The system includes two storage tanks to help meet the demands of peak usage periods.

Water is supplied to The Reserve at Rokeby by four community wells. Water is treated with disinfectant to ensure water quality does not degrade in the distribution system. The system includes a storage tank to help meet the demands of peak-use periods.
Water is supplied to Elysian Heights by five community wells. Water quality from these wells is high, and the only form of treatment provided to the water is the addition of fluoride to help prevent cavities and a disinfectant to aid in assuring that water quality does not degrade in the distribution system. The system includes a storage tank to help meet the demands of peak usage periods and to provide water during temporary power losses.Wastewater is collected and treated to a high degree at the wastewater treatment plant. At the plant, most organic material and nutrients are removed through biological treatment before being disinfected and discharged to an unnamed tributary of Limestone Branch.
