Protecting the Environment
Waterworks prides itself on being good stewards of the environment.
Waterworks feels so fortunate to have the opportunity to not only provide high quality and safe drinking water to our customers, but to also ensure that our customers can enjoy recreational activities on and around the reservoir.
Reservoirs Newport News Waterworks owns and operates 5 reservoirs and more than 12,000 acres of watershed property. Since 1947, a forest management program has existed to help promote the health of the forests within the watershed. The forests are managed with water quality protection being the primary objective. While Waterworks owns and operates the reservoirs they are managed by the Parks and Recreation Departments within their respective jurisdictions. We hope you will enjoy public access to the reservoirs for boating and fishing.
