Open or Close a Water and Sewer Account
You may start or stop water and sewer service with the Town of Leesburg by completing and submitting an online form.
Effective July 1, 2012, tenants must have an authorization form signed by the landlord or agent prior to establishment of water service in the tenant's name. The authorization form serves as an acknowledgment by the property owner that the tenant is establishing service and any unpaid water bills could cause a lien to be placed on the landlord’s property. The Town will not be held responsible for a delay in water being turned on if the form is not submitted.
Downloadable forms are available for residents or landlords, realtors, and agents who wish to establish a new service account. A downloadable stop water service form is available to anyone with an existing account. Several options for submitting completed forms are listed at the bottom of each form.
There is a $30 initial service charge, along with a $130 security deposit for a residential account and small commercial users. Security deposits are refunded after three years of good payment record (12 consecutive quarters with no late payments) or upon closing the account. The security deposit for a heavy commercial user account is 200% of anticipated quarterly usage.
We need a minimum of 24 hours notice to start or stop service Monday through Friday. Contact us by 3:00pm on Friday to start or stop service on the following Monday. We do not initiate or terminate service on weekends and holidays, and your request will be processed on the next business day.
