• WVAW-Fayetteville CSO Class II...

WVAW-Fayetteville CSO Class III Legal Advertisement West Virginia American Water owns and operates the wastewater system for the town of Fayetteville, in Fayette County, W.Va., under NPDES permit number WV0022314. This system is classified as a combined sewer overflow community (CSO community). During precipitation events (i.e. rainfall and snowmelt), the hydraulic capacity of the wastewater plant, lift stations, and even collection lines can be exceeded. To alleviate the hydraulic loading on the wastewater system, permitted relief points were designed into the system to allow excess wastewater combined with stormwater to flow from the system and into the receiving stream. These relief points have been labeled "combined sewer overflows (CSOs)." West Virginia American Water's Fayetteville wastewater system contains two (2) CSOs at the following locations: CSO Outlet #002 - Lat. 38 f03'54" Long. 81 f06'08" - discharging to Marr Branch, a tributary of the New River; and CSO Outlet #003 - Lat. 38 f03'10" Long. 81 f05'48" - discharging to House Branch, a tributary of Wolfe Creek, which in turn is a tributary of the New River. Signs are posted at each of these locations to inform the general public of the existence of these overflows and provide information about potential health risks during active overflow events. During these active overflow events, the potential exists for elevated levels of pollutants to enter the receiving streams at these locations. These pollutants may include potentially harmful bacteria. 11-20-MON-3-FT; L386
