Fauquier’s planning commission Thursday will conduct a public hearing on a special exception permit application to construct a temporary water treatment and storage system to serve the first phase of a much-anticipated data center just northeast of Remington.

The hearing on Remington Technology Park LP’s application will take place at 6:30 p.m. in the Warren Green Building at 10 Hotel St. in Warrenton.

Using a well on the 234-acre site along Lucky Hill Road, the proposed aboveground private system would provide potable water and satisfy fire-flow requirements only for the first planned data center building.

The proposed system won’t be used to cool the planned structure, which would total approximately 310,000 square feet.

Fauquier’s board of supervisors in March rezoned the site from residential to “Business Park” for up to six data center structures totaling 1.5 million to 1.8 million square feet.

Remington Technology Park needs the temporary system because the Fauquier County Water and Sanitation Authority and the Town of Remington “do not have sufficient capacity to meet” the first structure’s water needs, according to the county community development department report on the project.

Established by Alberta, Canada-based Point One Holdings Inc., the limited partnership continues to work with the WSA and neighboring landowners to “improve the public system” to serve the data centers, according to the county staff.

“It is anticipated that the private system will be in service for 12 to 18 months and be disconnected once the public system is available,” the report added.

Under the proposal, the applicant plans to rent up to 24 steel tanks — each with a capacity of 21,000 gallons — to address fire-flow needs.

The tanks and pumps would supply water to hydrants and the building’s fire sprinkler system.

The onsite well can produce 36,000 gallons per day, according to the staff report.

The potable component of the proposed water system would be constructed to provide 2,500 gallons per day — 2,400 per day for the employees and 100 gallons per day during construction.

The planning commission serves as an advisory panel to the county board of supervisors, which has final authority.

The board could conduct a public hearing on the application Dec. 13.
