Saturday meeting will kick off latest sewer project in W’md

Westmoreland County District 2 residents and taxpayers from Glebe Harbor subdivision, Tidwells and Drum Bay have been advised of an informational meeting the local government will hold this Saturday at Cople Elementary School.

A May 31 letter signed by County Administrator Norm Risavi has advised property owners in the three communities that “the Westmoreland County Board of Supervisors will be holding an informational meeting to explain the proposed Glebe Harbor, Tidwells and Drum Bay Sewer Project.

“This meeting will be held on Saturday, June 9, at 9 a.m., at the Cople Elementary School located at 7114 Cople Highway, Hague, VA,” the County Administrator wrote. “County staff will make a presentation explaining the funding of this project and the process for property owners to sign up for this service. We will also attempt to answer many of the frequently asked questions regarding the sewer project and provisions of service.

For those who will be unable to attend the meeting, the County will offer the opportunity to view the meeting via a live webcast at www.ustream.tv/channel/westmoreland. We have established the following email address for viewers to submit questions regarding this project: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Please feel free to either call 804-493-0130 for additional information or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..”

The web streaming of the June 9 informational meeting is a first for Westmoreland County. Risavi previously made it known that David Smith, a District 2 native who works in the county school division as a technology specialist, made the web streaming opportunity available to the county government. Web viewers will need high speed internet service to view the June 9 proceeding. 

On March 27, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development issued a letter of conditions advising Westmoreland County’s local government authorities that funding would be released to finance the $7,331,600 sewer project. The county would borrow $5,631,600 from Rural Development and residents would pay $3,000 to connect.

Westmoreland County would contribute $350,000 to support the project and tap fees would generate $1,350,000. The wastewater collection infrastructure would serve 2,400 residential customers and 25 businesses, according to the federal agency’s letter of conditions.

The collection lines installed in Glebe Harbor, Tidwells and Drum Bay would ultimately be connected to the Coles Point wastewater treatment facility, where a new 3,000,000 gallon storage basin would be installed to manage additional flows.
