Environmental Monitoring and Analylsis
Services are available for monitoring and analysis, as required by DEQ-issued VPDES permits, including permit application and routine monitoring for Discharge Monitoring Reports (DMRs). General services encompass organic, inorganic, and microbiological analyses. Low-level sampling and analytical techniques are used to monitor for organics, metals, and mercury. All sampling and analyses for VPDES permits comply with federal Clean Water Act provisions.
Monitoring and analyses of stormwater runoff and illicit discharges are conducted according to National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) and VPDES permit programs for Clean Water Act compliance. Runoff samples are analyzed for conventional pollutants. Monitoring is conducted using methods approved under Title 40 CFR Part 136 or alternate methods approved by EPA or the appropriate state regulatory agency.
Monitoring of the groundwater system at landfills and other disposal sites is performed according to Virginia Solid Waste Management Regulations (Title 9 Chapter 80).
Sampling and analyses of wastewater discharged from industries and businesses comply with Title 40 CFR Part 136 guidelines. Title 40 CFR Part 403 regulations govern services for permitting, compliance monitoring, enforcement, and surcharge assessment of industrial and commercial facilities. Other services include consultation and development of plans for industrial wastewater discharge permit programs, enforcement response, and Best Management Practices (BMP) assessment.
Sampling and analyses of process streams and ambient waters identify sources of inorganic and organic pollutants and monitor for biological indicators of water quality. Methods are selected based on regulatory requirements and reporting levels for each project.
Analyses are performed for a variety of solid waste samples such as soil, biosolids, and incinerator ash (including the Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure), according to EPA SW-846. Monitoring complies with Title 40 CFR Part 503 standards and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) requirements.
Air monitoring programs are conducted in compliance with state and federal regulations for air quality emissions according to Title 60 FR Reference Method 9. Programs include air sampling and analysis, odor monitoring, odor control performance evaluations, and visible emissions evaluations.
Your sewer bill pays for the collection and treatment of the wastewater you generate in your home or business, the repair or replacement of broken sewer lines and manholes, the operation and maintenance of the wastewater treatment plant, and the debt the town incurred in the past for the existing system and improvements.
No. Unlike many other town services, Urbanna’s sanitary sewer system is not funded with tax dollars. HRSD, your public wastewater utility, is funded solely by connection fees and user charges.
CONSTRUCTION NOTICE UPDATE for HAMPTON January 2018
--Portion of Chesapeake Avenue closing to traffic--
HRSD, your regional wastewater treatment utility, is replacing a sanitary sewer pipeline located along a portion of Chesapeake Avenue from the Monitor Merrimac Overlook Park to the HRSD Pumping Station near Claremont Avenue. This work should take place primarily between the hours of
8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
- The contractor has completed pipe installation in Newport News and is advancing into Hampton to continue the next phase of work.
- Beginning as early as January 10, Chesapeake Avenue will be closed to thru traffic in both directions from Pear Avenue to Locust Avenue. Residents living along the work zone will still be able to access their homes.
- A signed detour will be in place redirecting thru traffic around the construction via Blair Avenue.
- This work can be weather and situation dependent and should not affect your water or sewer services.
While our project team works diligently to minimize impacts, you may notice increased noise and traffic, work crews, and heavy equipment (with back-up safety alarms) associated with construction. Please take care when traveling around the construction area and for your own safety, do not enter the site.
For additional information please visit the project’s website page, www.hrsd.com/chesapeake-avenue.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as HRSD works to protect public health and the waters of Hampton Roads in keeping with our vision:
Future generations will inherit clean waterways and be able to keep them clean.

Canal Drive Sanitary Sewer Pipeline Replacement FAQs
This project will replace an existing pipeline constructed in the 1970s, that currently runs along Canal Drive; this pipeline has known corrosion issues and is in need of replacement. This project will provide updated infrastructure that will help ensure HRSD’s ability to protect public health and the environment for decades to come.
Yes. For safety reasons it is anticipated that where crews are working, one lane of traffic will be closed adjacent to this work. The contractor will use an approved and comprehensive traffic control plan, with flaggers, to assist the public traveling through the area and to help minimize impacts. A ‘rolling construction’ method will be utilized establishing a singular workzone (300 – 500 feet) at a time and completing that work before moving onto the next section. This allows construction to move from one end of the project to the other in smaller segments ensuring the smallest possible area is impacted.

The contractor will ensure that access to residences and at least one entrance to businesses will be
maintained throughout construction. Trash and mail services should not be affected. If necessary, the
contractor will move trash containers from within a work zone to an area accessible for pickup, and will be
responsible for returning them to each residence.
Work will typically take place Monday through Friday during daylight hours (8 a.m. - 5 p.m.). However,
there may be times when extended hours, work at night, or weekend work may be necessary.
No interruptions to your water or sewer services are anticipated during construction. The location of the new force main was designed to keep the existing sewer system active during construction.
Areas that are disturbed by construction such as: asphalt, gutters, driveway aprons, and grass will be
restored upon completion of the project. Once the new pipeline is in service, the existing pipeline will be
filled with a concrete-like material so the pipe can safely be left in place to minimize additional disruptions.
The typical construction noises such as equipment engines, back-up alarms, materials being delivered, diesel generators, air compressors, sawing, etc. should be anticipated.
An area for storage in the project vicinity has been acquired and this site will be used for most of the
equipment and supplies. The contractor will keep some supplies in the public right-of way and easements
along the project path.
The estimated cost for the project is $5.5 million and is financed by the wastewater treatment fees paid by HRSD customers and a Virginia Clean Water Revolving Loan Fund grant from the State of Virginia.
