Joint Letter from F.C. & Fairfax Water Authority

Editor,

We believe we need to correct the record on a story that first appeared in the on-line edition of the Falls Church News-Press on August 3, 2010, regarding a pipeline project that the City of Falls church has planned to better serve a few businesses in the Tysons Corner area. Mr. Benton has suggested that this project was necessary because the City of Falls Church and Fairfax Water had refused to cooperate in some manner to respond to customer complaints.  This is not true.  These customers are served by Falls Church through an interconnection with Fairfax Water. The City of Falls Church has long planned to build this pipeline to directly serve these customers and the decision to go forward with the project has nothing to with the recent litigation or any failure on the part of either the City or Fairfax Water.  The City and Fairfax Water have had legal differences in the past, but those differences have never been allowed to interfere with normal operational coordination to ensure safe, reliable service for all our customers.

Wyatt Shields, City Manager, City of Falls Church &

Charles M. Murray, General Manager, Fairfax Water
