Loudoun Water Posts FAQ section for Beaverdam Closure

Beaverdam Creek Reservoir FAQs

I’m going to reserve a bit of judgement on the FAQs until we actually meet with them later this week, but the one that just rubs me the wrong way is this:

Does Loudoun Water receive taxpayer funding from Loudoun County government or the Commonwealth of Virginia?

No, it does not receive direct taxpayer funding.  But it was built in 1959  using taxpayer funding and would not function in any shape or form without funding directly from Loudoun and only Loudoun residents.  They would like to have you think they are an independent corporation, but they are not.  Board leadership is directly appointed by the Loudoun Board of Supervisors.  Loudoun BOS has ultimate control of what they do, just like the school system.

Just a good example of how they are trying to make you think they can do what they want.
