Apply for Water / Sewer Service

The Spotsylvania County Utilities Department provides water and sewer services in the primary settlement district of Spotsylvania County, Virginia.

Start or Stop Service

A written Application for Water and Sewer Service (PDF) is required for any water/sewer service to be initiated at a property address. For security reasons, please be aware that the application cannot be completed online or by telephone.  Please print the application and provide the required information as well as signature(s).

It generally takes one business day (and in some circumstances longer) to process applications for water/sewer services. Starting or stopping services takes place during normal business hours, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m, Monday through Friday (excluding holidays). 

Services can be obtained in the property owner’s name; or, if the property is being leased, services can be obtained in the tenants’ names. Please note that all persons listed as property owners or as tenants must complete and sign the water/sewer application. All residential or commercial properties that are serviced only by sanitary sewer service (no water service available in location) will maintain an account in the owner’s name. Spotsylvania County Utilities will not establish a "sewer-only account" in the name of a tenant. The applicants will need to provide the following information:

  • Completed and signed application.
  • If leasing the property, provide a copy of the current lease. It is required that the water/sewer applicants’ names are listed on the lease agreement as tenants at the property address and that the signatures of all tenants, as well as the landlord/leasing agent, are completed on the lease agreement. In addition, the lease should indicate that the tenants are responsible for the water/sewer utility services.

Applications for water/sewer service are accepted in person, through mail, email or facsimile transmission. Generally, it takes one business day to establish services; however, it can take longer if all requirements are not met.
