Water & Sewer

The Town of Glasgow provides water and wastewater services to its residents. Using wells as our water source we treat, store and distribute over 7 million gallons of water each month to our residential and commercial customers. Our wastewater plant treats an average of over 200,000-gallon per day. One licensed operator is responsible for both utilities and all the testing, documentation, and reporting associated with this essential service.

For residential use, water and sewer service costs can be found on the Taxes and Utilities Rate page. No water bills are sent to residential customers, but we will provide you with a payment card to help you remember that payments are due on the first (1st) of each month. Remember- We do not send out quarterly water statements.

Town staff maintains the water distribution and sewer collection systems. They regularly check our lines, but if you notice an overflowing manhole, or a water leak, we would appreciate you letting us know. If you have a water leak or sewer blockage on your service line you will need to contact a contractor to do this work. We would be happy to assist you with the names of some local contractors who do this type of work.

Water Quality

Each year, in cooperation with the Virginia Department of Health, Office of Drinking Water, the Town of Glasgow prepares an Annual Drinking Water Quality Report.

Benefits of New Water System

An EPA-funded project to replace the aging and undersized water lines in Glasgow has transformed the community – providing major cost savings, improved water quality and greater public safety, while eliminating leaks that drained half of the town’s water production.
