Utilities COVID-19 Information
The Chesterfield County Department of Utilities recognizes the impact that COVID-19, or Coronavirus, is having on our customers. Following is important information regarding your water and wastewater service and the accommodations that we are providing during this time.
Water and Wastewater Disconnections Suspended
According to the Centers for Disease Control, handwashing is one of the best ways to protect yourself and your family from getting sick. To promote the safety and health of our customers, we want to ensure that each of you have access to clean, reliable water regardless of your current financial situation. At this time, all water and wastewater service disconnections have been suspended.
Penalties and Interest Waived
Chesterfield County Code Section 18-29 has been amended to waive penalties and interest on unpaid water and wastewater bills beginning March 25, 2020. This amendment will apply until 30 days after the county-declared emergency is lifted. Utility billing will continue on schedule.
