Summary The Virginia Water and Waste Authorities Act gave localities the authority to adopt ordinances requiring a private property owner to connect to public water or sewerage systems if available. The Act was later amended to allow exceptions, giving a private property owner the choice to either continue the use of the private well or connect to a public water supply. Cross connections between a private well (an auxiliary water system) and a waterworks are prohibited pursuant to the Waterworks Regulations.
