Water / Sewer Rates
Stafford County has separate rate structures for residential, non-residential, and multi-family customers.
- Bills for non-residential customers are calculated using a flat rate, with no cap on sewer.
- Residential water bills are calculated using an inclining block rate structure to encourage water conservation. This means that the more water that is used in a particular month, the higher the unit price. Please use water wisely.
- Stafford County recognizes that higher water usage by residents during the summer months is usually due to outside activities – watering lawns, washing cars, filling pools, etc. For this reason, residential sewer usage is capped at 120% of the winter average.
Current Water & Sewer Rates Rates effective June 1, 2016. The unit cost is per every thousand gallons.
