A presentation for the preliminary plan for the PRS and storage tanks at an open house is scheduled for September 9, 2021, between 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in Tabb High School lobby, 4431 Bethel Road, Yorktown ,VA 23693. The purpose of the open house is to provide the community with an opportunity to discuss the project with the project team. Discussion topics include: the project possibility, history of HRSD, and provide an opportunity to ask questions. A recorded presentation of the material will be posted on the HRSD website and York County website.
The purpose of the PRS project is to moderate pressure on our sewer system during heavy rains and high usage events. Historically, high pressure situations result in raw sewage overwhelming the system to a point where the sewage is released into our rivers and streams. Another benefit of the PRS is that it helps the sewer and water treatment facilities with the SWIFT program. This program is designed to pump highly treated (drinkable) water back into the aquifer to improve water quality in the Chesapeake Bay, replenish the groundwater supply, and reduce land subsidence. When the SWIFT program is complete, nearly all the treated water released today into the rivers will be sent to the aquifer.
