The City of Alexandria’s sewer system covers 15.4 square miles, of which less than 6% (540 acres) is served by a combined sewer system dating back to the early 1800s. During wet weather after the capacity of the sewer system is reached, combined sewer flows (mixture of sanitary sewage and stormwater) discharge to the surrounding waterbodies through four outfalls located in the Old Town area of the City. These discharges, or combined sewer overflows (CSOs), typically occur 60-70 times per year. There are over 800 combined sewer systems nationwide.

The City has developed a Long Term Control Plan that proposes approximately $360 million of infrastructure to comply with a 2017 CSO State Law. This law requires the City to significantly reduce the number and volume of CSOs to comply with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA’s) CSO Policy and local total maximum daily load (TMDL) for bacteria. Additionally, this law mandates the City to complete construction by July 1, 2025.
