Penderwood Water Storage Tank

To ensure a safe, continuous and reliable drinking water supply, Fairfax Water is increasing the amount of water stored in the distribution system. Construction of the proposed storage tank is part of a multi-million dollar investment being made by Fairfax Water to increase system reliability.

With a capacity of 5.5-million gallons, this new water storage tank will be located adjacent to the existing elevated storage tank on West Ox Road in the Penderwood area.

Storage tank construction is estimated to take approximately 18-months. Construction activity will be restricted to normal working hours. The impact to traffic flow on West Ox Road is expected to be minimal. Every effort will be made to minimize dust, silt and environmental impacts during construction. When the project is complete, all disturbed unpaved areas will be graded and seeded and paved areas impacted by the construction will be repaved to meet Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) standards.
