The Town of Gordonsville purchases water from the Rapidan Service Authority and provides water service to customers in and around the town. Water is drawn from the Rapidan River in Orange where it is treated and pumped up Route 15 to Gordonsville.
Rapidan Service Authority charges the Town for all water purchased. Each month, the Town's three main water meters are read and the Town is sent a bill for water used. The Town pays this bill at the end of the month. In turn, the Town bills Town citizens for their monthly usage. The amount billed is based on monthly meter readings. Meters are read on the 15th of each month; bills are processed and mailed by the 23rd of the month. Water bills must be paid by the 15th of the following month. If water bills are not paid by the 15th of the month, water customers have until 4:30 on the first Tuesday of the next month to pay their past due balance in full to avoid having their water service cut off.
Water cut-offs are done at 8:00 am on the first Wednesday of each month. If the water service is disconnected, then the entire account balance becomes due in addition to any delinquent fees the account may incur. If the account becomes delinquent four times in one year, a $200.00 deposit will be required in addition to the balance being paid in full.
Sanitary sewer service is provided by the Rapidan Service Authority, which operates a wastewater treatment plant at the town limits.
The Town Treasurer's office bills and collects for both water and sewer.
