Check here for information on future projects that will expand or improve our water and wastewater systems.  For those listed below with an expected completion date, funding has been secured.

  • Accountability, Reliability, and Sustainability Water Project
    2021

    This project received $1.343 million in funding from the Virginia Department of Health and includes multiple improvements to our water plants and distribution system, including incorporating an existing high-producing well at Natural Tunnel State Park into our water supply grid.  Construction began in 2020 and is expected to be completed in 2022.

  • Robinette Valley Water
    2021

    This project to serve approximately 52 homes will build off of the existing water main on Robinette Valley Road and extend as far west as Page Ridge Lane.  The PSA received funds from LENOWISCO to do a preliminary engineering report and in 2019 we received notice of funding in the amount of $1.856 million for construction of this project and the Hunters Valley West waterline from the Virginia Department of Health.  Construction was expected to start in summer 2020 but due to environmental permitting delays, will start in 2021.

  • Hunters Valley West Water
    2021

    This project to serve about 30 homes will build off of the Big Stoney Creek waterline extension.  It will start at the intersection of Big Stoney Creek Road and Hunters Valley East Road and extend west to 9922 Hunters Valley West Road.  The PSA received funds from LENOWISCO to do a preliminary engineering report and in 2019 we received notice of funding for construction from the Virginia Department of Health.  Construction was to begin in summer 2020 but due to environmental permitting delays will begin in late 2021.

  • Nickelsville Water Improvements
    2020

    This project is funded by the Virginia Department of Health and will make numerous improvements to the Town water system.

  • Nickelsville Wastewater Improvement Project
    2021

    This project is funded by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality and will consist of numerous improvements and upgrades to the Town sewage treatment plant and sewage pump stations.

  • Yuma Phases 2, 3, & 4/Hiltons Phases 1, 2, & 3 Sewer
    2023

    These projects received $15.848 million in funding from USDA Rural Development.  They will serve (1) areas in Yuma adjacent to the existing Yuma sewer that were not served by the Yuma Phase 1 Sewer Project and west of Yuma Elementary and (2) areas along US 58 from Nottingham to the center of the Hiltons community including Hiltons Elementary School.

  • Weber City Water Main Replacement/Leakage Reduction, Phase 2
    2022

    This project received funding from Virginia Department of Health and will continue work o our goal of reducing water loss in Weber City by replacing old and deteriorating galvanized water pipes.  Phase 1 was completed in 2020 and Phase 2 is expected to start construction by 2022.

  • Alley Valley, Dingus Hollow, Gas Well Roads Water
    12/31/2020

    This project will provide water to three different service areas.  LENOWISCO Planning District Commission approved funds for the project in February 2020.  We expect construction to start in late summer 2020.

  • Central Scott County Water Project
    Seeking User Agreements

    This would be the first phase of the PSA’s Comprehensive County Water Project with the goal of extending water to most of the County residents.  The Central Scott County Water Project will serve the area north and east of Gate City lying between Clinch Mountain and Clinch River (serving Big Moccasin, Corn Ridge, Midway, Nickelsville, Reed Hollow, Snowflake, Upper Manville, and Williams Mill).  We have applied for and received funding from USDA Rural Development to do the engineering study for the project.  We need to know the demand for this project.  We encourage property owners in these areas to sign up for water service so we can start the process of getting money to construct the project.  For User Agreement forms, look under Customer Service/New Service Request on this site, or come by or contact our office.

  • Reed Hollow Road Water Extension
    Seeking User Agreements

    This project would serve the homes from the Gate City town limits to the top of the hill, including side roads. We are currently gathering user agreements and income surveys.  The Lane Group is the engineer for this project.

  • Reed Hollow Road Sewer Extension
    Seeking User Agreements

    This project would serve the homes from the Gate City town limits to the top of the hill, including side roads.  We are currently gathering user agreements and income surveys.  The Lane Group is the engineer for this project.
