Are there any properties located within the boundaries of the TCSD that do not pay ad valorem taxes but have public water and sewer services?

Yes, there are legally taxable properties that are not in the TCSD but are within the physical boundaries of the district. These properties have the benefit of water and sewer infrastructure but do not pay the ad valorem tax because they are connected to water and sewer infrastructure built by a private land owner in the early 1990s, before the creation of the TCSD in June 2004. While these properties are within the TCSD boundaries, they are served by the privately built infrastructure and are not part of the TCSD.

While not subject to the ad valorem tax, each of these properties pay capacity charges that are unique to these properties and are not paid by any properties that pay the ad valorem tax.

Here is a listing of those properties and the amount of reserved capacity:

AccountsReserved Capacity (gallons per day, GPD)
Performance Food Group5,293
Federal Reserve19,968
Farm Bureau29,000
Capital One150,000
Hallmark Youth Care-West6,525
Manakin Trade Center6,380
Bristol Apartments81,834
West Creek*76,000


* The West Creek account represents unbuilt project(s) entitled to utilize the remainder (76,000) of the reserved capacity.
