Fairfax Water has been working closely with Mason representatives on preliminary plans for the project.
The new tank will be supplied through a new 24-inch diameter water main that will extend from Shirley Gate Drive to Campus Drive along Braddock Road, and then across
portions of the GMU campus. The alignment of the new water main will be largely within public right-of-way and Fairfax Water will work closely with VDOT to minimize
traffic disruptions during construction. The map above shows the preliminary alignment of the new transmission main.
Fairfax Water presented information about these projects, including renderings illustrating how the tank will appear from various perspectives, at the Mason/Community
Forum on September 28, 2016. For a copy of the presentation, please click here.
