LCSA is a political subdivision of the state, just like a Town or a County. All income is received either as user fees from customers or availability fees from developers. User fees pay for operating expenses. Availability fees pay for capital improvements. LCSA receives no tax money.
Board of Directors
LCSA's nine-member Board governs how it operates and generally meets every second Thursday of the month. These meetings are open to the public. Each member of the Board is appointed at-large by the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors and serves a four-year term. These terms are staggered, so that every year, two members are re-appointed and every fourth year, three members are re-appointed. The Authority's Board appoints a General Manager and a Deputy General Manager who are responsible for the daily management of LCSA.
Water and Wastewater Operations
LCSA purchases its water from Fairfax Water (Fairfax County Water Authority) and the City of Fairfax. A small percentage of LCSA's customers are part of Community Systems. Customers within these systems have community wells. Wastewater in the Central Service Area is sent to the District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority.
