Shenandoah Farms Sanitary District
The Shenandoah Farms Sanitary District, located within the Warren County portion of the Shenandoah Farms community, is tasked with maintaining and improving the local road system. This includes the supervision of two dams within the district that require regular monitoring and maintenance.
Our team of dedicated employees, including our Foreman Timmy Lentz and Equipment Operators Albert "Happy" Anderson, Mark Deavers, and Andrew Moorefield, work tirelessly to ensure that our community's infrastructure remains safe and functional.
As part of our responsibilities, we're involved in a wide range of activities and projects:
- Developing contracts for necessary roadwork, such as maintenance, snow removal, and surveying.
- Determining maintenance needs, developing action plans, and ensuring the efficient and quality work of contractors.
- Inspecting and monitoring the dams at Lake of the Clouds and Spring Lake.
- Responding to resident requests and concerns, and keeping residents and county officials informed of operations.
- Performing minor road maintenance operations and snow removal.
- Driving roads and scheduling needed repairs after inclement weather events.
We also prioritize and develop projects for road improvements, such as widening and drainage upgrades in preparation for eventual paving projects. We identify potential VDOT Revenue sharing projects and administer such projects as state funds become available.
For any inquiries or concerns, you can send an email to Warren County's Shenandoah Farms Sanitary District here.
In recent news, we've provided updates on various projects including the Venus Branch/Drummer Hill Road Update and the Mailbox Cluster Memo. You can find these updates and more on our website.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding as we work to improve our community's infrastructure.
