What we do

RWSA provides clean, safe, high-quality drinking water to the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County Service Authority’s over 115,000 customers. We then treat the wastewater so that it can be safely returned back to the aquatic environment. The RWSA operates five reservoirs at Ragged Mountain, Sugar Hollow, South Fork Rivanna, Totier Creek, Beaver Creek, along with six water treatment plants, and four wastewater treatment plants.
