User Rates

The Fauquier County Water and Sanitation Authority (the “Authority”) bills its water and sewer customers monthly.  Customers are billed a Base Service Fee each month to pay for the fixed costs and overhead expenses we incur each month to provide you our services.  In addition, customers are billed a Usage Fee each month to pay for the variable (per gallon) expenses we incur each for the volume of service you elect to use.  The Authority’s water and sewer services are allocated and billed by the size of the meter that serves individual properties.  Typically, residential customers use a 5/8” x 3/4” meter.  Customers with meters that are larger than 5/8” x 3/4” will be billed at a commensurately larger rate.  For the typically used 5/8” x 3/4” meter, the following fees apply.

Note: Unmetered residential customers will be charged a flat fee for usage based on meter size per month for water and/or sewer.
