The Middle Peninsula Planning District Commission (MPPDC) knew that local residents were facing grave problems with repairing failing septic systems. The Commission turned to the Clean Water Revolving Loan Fund (CWRLF) for a solution to this pressing problem. The MPPDC secured a $200,000 loan from the CWRLF to support the Regional On-site Wastewater Treatment and Disposal Funding Program. This Program was established in 1997 to improve water quality and address public health concerns in the York, Rappahannock and Lower Small Coastal Watersheds. This Program also supports the Commonwealth's Chesapeake Bay Watershed Implementation Plan.
The James River Water Authority (JRWA) secured approximately $9 million in bond proceeds from the Virginia Pooled Financing Program to provide for the long-term raw water needs of Fluvanna and Louisa Counties. JRWA plans to use these funds to construct a water intake structure on the James River, a pump station, a pipeline from the intake facility to a point close to Route 6 (near Columbia) and a "T" connection that will ultimately send water to both localities. JRWA would operate as a wholesale raw water provider and owner of the related infrastructure improvements.
