 Wholesale Water User Rates (monthly billing)

  For consecutive public water supply systems

 Regardless of meter size, consecutive public water supply systems shall be entitled to a discount of 22.5% off the established retail rate for water so long as their minimum usage exceeds 4.25 million gallons per month.

The proposed increase of 7.7% in sewer rates will assist the Authority in meeting rising costs due to increased regulatory mandates.  A complete Proposed Fee-rate Schedule is available upon request from Louisa County Water Authority by phone at 540-967-1122 or in writing at P. O. Box 9, Louisa, Virginia 23093.
