    The City of Lynchburg is proposing roadway improvements in the vicinity of the intersection of US 221 (Lakeside Drive) and US 501 (Lynchburg Expressway) to alleviate existing traffic congestions and delay, improve public safety, and accommodate anticipated traffic increases as growth continues to expand in the surrounding area.

    Game the grease and eliminate fatbergs from Lynchburg’s sewer system!

    If you already have water and/or sewer service on your property and simply need to set up the service in your name, please call the Billing Department at 434-455-3840.  You can also visit the department in-person at City Hall at 900 Church Street.


    In 2012, the City of Lynchburg began upgrading water, sewer, and stormwater services in the Blue Ridge Farms neighborhood.

    In Phase III, water and sewer, and stormwater improvements will be made on Timber Court, Ashbourne Drive, Craigmont Drive, and parts of Tunbridge Road and Ramsgate Lane.  With over 7,500 linear feet of water, sewer, and stormwater rehabilitation and replacement, this project will replace aging infrastructure, increase fire protection, and increase water and sewer capacity in the area.

    At Lynchburg Water Resources, our job is clear: to provide an uninterrupted supply of quality drinking water and reliable sewer service to the City of Lynchburg.  

    We do this by continually investing in our water, sewer, and stormwater infrastructure.  These investments can be seen across the city through system upgrades, programs to reduce nutrient discharges and combined sewer overflows to local waterways, and projects that improve the efficiency of our operations.

    While the City is continuing to address the combined sewer system by closing overflow points and increasing combined wastewater treatment capability, you can help us address the problem at home and work!
