The Public Works Wastewater Division (sometimes referred to as the Wastewater System Services Division or WSSD) is responsible for providing reliable wastewater service to City customers and is an independent enterprise owned by the citizens of the City of Fairfax. It operates under the close fiscal supervision of your elected City Council members and the City Manager. All wastewater services are paid for by the customers who use them at rates approved by the City Council. As an enterprise, city taxes are not used to support these services.

Wastewater Easement Maintenance

The Division will mow and clear wastewater easements throughout the year, as weather and scheduling permit. These easements are located on private properties and remain open to allow for access to the wastewater conveyance piping for maintenance purposes. Residents with questions or concerns can call the Public Works Wastewater Division at 703-385-7915.

Utility Safety - Call Before You Dig

Before digging the ground for any construction or planting, please call MISS UTILITY to have all underground utilities marked in order to prevent damage or disruption of services; it is the LAW.
