We have placed 15 MPH advisory speed limit signs throughout the Sanitary District. However, this is not an enforceable speed limit. The only way to legally post enforceable speed limits is to conduct individual traffic engineering studies of each section of roadway. Money is better spent addressing the infrastructure needs of the road system. If you observe reckless driving, please contact the Warren County Sheriff's Office via phone at 540-635-4128.

While Warren County is filling the Sanitary District Manager position, all inquiries or concerns should be directed to Sanitary District Manager Michael Coffelt. You can reach him at 540-935-7649 or via email. In case of an emergency, please call the Warren County Sheriff's Office at 540-635-4128.
The Sanitary District Manager oversees the maintenance and construction on the Sanitary District Road and Drainage system and related rights-of-way in the Warren County portion of Shenandoah Farms. This also includes the management of the dams at the Lake of the Clouds and Spring Lake.
The manager's responsibilities include:
You can stay informed through the Warren County website. There's a page for the Sanitary District under the "Government" menu, within the "Public Works" department. Updates will be posted there, as well as in the notices/comments section. If you've shared your email address with us, we'll also send updates directly to your inbox.
Dust on the roads is common during the dry summer and fall seasons. We've looked into dust control methods, one of which is the application of liquid or flake calcium chloride. However, this solution is beyond our budget and has potential environmental implications. This chemical absorbs moisture, which can lead to soft, muddy roads during winter and potential groundwater contamination.
Washboard roads usually occur due to lack of moisture and traffic/speed. They're particularly prevalent when weather conditions are dry and frequent rainfall reduces their chances. Hard acceleration or braking can accelerate wash boarding, which is why you'll see it frequently at intersections, before and after sharp curves, and on hills.
The Shenandoah Farms road system is divided into 5 snow removal routes. We use a combination of County equipment and contract equipment to remove snow and treat icy spots with abrasive materials. Salt is not used on gravel/dirt roads as it retains moisture and causes the roads to get soft and muddy.
Road signs marking the road names at intersections are the responsibility of Warren County. If you notice road signs down or missing, please contact the County Administrator's Office via phone at 540-636-4600 or the Sanitary District Manager and it can be passed along. Part of the road and drainage study will be to determine the need and location of regulatory road signs such as stop and yield signs.
The Road and Drainage Engineering study will determine the ultimate design of all of the roads in the Sanitary District. Many roads will be designed for paving. However, proper drainage (pipes and ditches), excavation and widening, and the construction of a proper road base must be in place first. Expect drainage improvements (new pipes, ditches etc.) to be some of the first improvements you will see.
