New $2.3 million Water Filtration System
Completed: April 2020

As of April 2, 2020, a new, modern water filtration system is up and running, in Exmore, serving the Town’s residential households and businesses. The new system removes iron and manganese from the water, significantly improving taste and clarity. The project, which includes two new wells and a force main backwash, required three years of planning and site work to compete. Construction was handled by Draper Aden Associates and monitored by Taylor Dukes, Utilities Director and Zoning Administrator for the Town of Exmore.

The $1.5 million investment in the new facility was partially funded through a State of Virginia Community Block Grant and funding from Virginia Department of Health, Office of Drinking Water Revolving Loan Fund for funding and loan forgiveness.
