Washington County Service Authority’s (WCSA) roots go back as far as 1910. WCSA, as it exists today, was
formed in 1976 when the Washington County Sanitary District No. 1 merged with two private water companies: Goodson Kinderhook Water Authority, which included Bristol and southern Washington County, and the Manhaim Water Company, which served the area between Glade Spring and Saltville. Currently, WCSA serves approximately 23,000 water and 3,000 wastewater customers. The water system consists of approximately 900 miles of water line, a 12.0-million-gallon-per-day surface water treatment plant, a 3.1-million-gallon-per-day membrane filtration plant, two springs, one well, 29 pump stations and 20 water storage tanks. The wastewater system consists of approximately 70 miles of wastewater collection lines, 29 pump stations and two conventional wastewater treatment plants. WCSA has earned the Virginia Optimization Program Gold Award for its high-quality drinking water treatment from the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) Office of Drinking Water, the highest possible ranking in operations and performance excellence for water utilities. WCSA has received this award each year since 2010.
