County wide projects:

Miscellaneous Sewer Rehabilitation:

This project continues our “find and fix” program of sanitary sewer rehabilitation to reduce infiltration and inflow (I&I) in our system. This work will utilize a publicly bid miscellaneous sewer rehabilitation contract that is renewable on an annual basis up to four times after the initial year long contract. It will be used to make repairs and rehabilitate problems in our system found with systematic CCTV inspection by ACSA crews and the subcontractor. FY2019 Budget: $400,000

SCADA System:

The ACSA Utility System has over 40 critical assets that include water and wastewater pump stations, water storage tanks and master PRV stations. This project will create a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) System that will allow ACSA employees to remotely monitor the operations of these critical assets from the main office building. Using alarms we will be able to more quickly evaluate problems and prevent some failures before they happen. The first phase is complete and in operation. The second phase is complete. The design of Phase 3 is complete and construction is expected to be finished in FY 2019 using funds previously budgeted. Total Budget: $1,744,000

Advanced Metering Infrastructure Feasibility Study:

This project addresses a goal in our Strategic Plan to evaluate various AMI technologies in relation to our existing metering system, as well as, the compatibility of our existing billing system to convert to an AMI system. It will include a financial analysis, a potential implementation plan, and make recommendations. The study will provide the necessary information for further discussion and help the ACSA determine whether or not implementing an AMI system would better support the needs of our customers and staff into the future. Total Budget: $200,000

Vulnerability Assessment Improvements:

As part of the on-going preparedness program for the ACSA to remain resilient a Vulnerability Assessment was completed in conjunction with our community partners. All our critical assets were analyzed for risks caused by both natural and human-made hazards, using the AWWA Standard J100: Risk and Resilience Management of Water and Wastewater Systems. The result was a report to establish mitigation measures to lower risks and increase resiliency. Some mitigation measures are already underway and additional high priority improvements will be made in FY2019. Future measures will be budgeted in the next two or three fiscal years. Total Budget: $1,476,000

Sewer Pump Stations Comminuters:

Three sewer pump stations: Glenmore, Georgetown Green, and Crozet have all been experiencing higher than normal amounts of solid debris that have been causing undue wear and tear on our pumps, reducing their effective life. They have also been subjected to clogging from the fibrous cloth wipes that are marketed as flushable but do not break down in the sanitary sewer collection system. Maintenance identified the need to install comminuters (AKA grinders) in the wet wells or just upstream of them, to eliminate these solids that are adversely impacting our pumps. Total Budget: $240,000

Developer Participation:

Each year funds are set aside to participate in oversizing utilities constructed to serve new development. The Rate Model includes $100,000 divided equally between water and wastewater projects as a contingency to insure the new pipes are sized to meet the ACSA’s long-range needs. Total Budget: $100,000
