Water Treatment


The Town owns and operates a Water Treatment Plant to ensure a plentiful supply of potable water to its residents and several Warren County customers for human consumption and fire suppression.

Each employee at the Water Treatment Plant is committed to producing the highest quality water. The environmental quality of the water produced is in accordance with the rigorous standards established by the Virginia Department of Health (VDH), Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to assure safety to the consumer and the environment.
