Water and sewer services in the City of Roanoke are provided by the Western Virginia Water Authority (WVWA).  The Authority was formed on July 1, 2004 when the water and wastewater operations of the City of Roanoke and Roanoke County consolidated. Five years later, on November 24, 2009, Franklin County officially joined the Western Virginia Water Authority and Botetourt County joined on July 1, 2015. The Authority now provides water service to over 159,000 residential and commercial accounts and wastewater service to more than 122,000 connections in the City of Roanoke, Roanoke County, Franklin County and Botetourt County.

No matter your water and sewer needs, WVWA can meet your demand.  The Authority presently treats 19 million gallons of drinking water per day, with the ability to treat up to 56 million gallons per day.  And WVWA’s state-of-the-art wastewater treatment facility treats 37 million gallons per day, with plenty of excess capacity in the system to handle your business needs.
