Wet weather program takes a major step to remediate Alexandria’s sewer system to promote healthier waterways

Alexandria’s largest infrastructure project to date targets a century-old sewer system issue

We’re excited to announce that Alexandria’s Long Term Control Plan Update outlining an approach to remediate Alexandria’s combined sewer system has been accepted by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality. The plan was jointly prepared by Alexandria Renew Enterprises (AlexRenew) and the City of Alexandria in response to legislation passed in April 2017 to prevent millions of gallons of sewage mixed with rainwater from reaching our rivers and streams.

The acceptance of the plan marks a major milestone in complying with the legislation and also a shift in ownership, as AlexRenew will lead the implementation of the plan in partnership with the City of Alexandria. Check out the attached press release here, keep up to date with progress by signing up here and look for a new brand supporting this investment in healthier waterways for Alexandria soon!
