Sewer Rates

Effective March 1, 2015, the residential sewer rate increased from $48 to $52 every other month. 

Sewer maintenance rate increases are attributable to the increased cost of maintenance and rehabilitation of the County's sanitary sewer infrastructure and seventy-plus pump stations, as well as for the capital improvement expenditures necessary to meet the requirements of the Hampton Roads Regional Consent Order executed with the Commonwealth of Virginia, Department of Environmental Quality, effective September 26, 2007.
