Planning for the future

Investing in our clean water future takes time, money and dedicated resources. That’s why we’re looking for the help and support of others who are committed to bringing cleaner water faster to all of RVA. If you’d like to be a part of our multi-year planning process, let us know.

Project Timeline

Over the next three years, we’ll be addressing water quality challenges around RVA, noting both the progress that we’ve made and prioritizing the projects and investments to best improve the city's water quality. As a part of our multi-year planning process, we will measure water quality and watershed data and use this information to build an integrated plan for watershed management.
