Where Does WCSA’s Water Come From?

Apr 18, 2016

WCSA takes raw water from the Middle and South Forks of the Holston River, two large springs (located in the Mill Creek and Taylor’s Valley communities) and from a well in Mendota. These raw sources are treated by effective methods and then pumped into the water system.

WCSA also purchases water from the Town of Saltville and expects to soon purchase water from Scott County Public Service Authority and Russell County Public Service Authority for the Mendota and Hidden Valley communities, respectively.

All of the water produced by WCSA must meet water quality requirements set by the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) and the EPA. WCSA has consistently met and even surpassed these stringent requirements.
