If you witness an illegal connection to a Town fire hydrant, unauthorized dumping into a sanitary sewer manhole or other suspicious activity related to Town water & sewer facilities, please call 703-771-2750, or 703-771-4500, or complete our online Illegal Connection or Dumping Report.
Fire Hydrant Tampering
It is illegal to tamper with or open a fire hydrant without a permit from the Utilities Department. All withdrawals from Town fire hydrants must be accomplished through a water meter and backflow prevention device. All town-rented hydrant meters are dark blue in color, like the examples shown below.
The meter must be attached to the hydrant during use. If you do not see a dark blue hydrant meter, or see a meter of another color, or suspect tampering or misuse of a fire hydrant, please report it via our online form or call the Utilities Department immediately! During normal business hours (Mon-Fri, 8:30am-5:00pm), please call 703-771-2750. After 5:00pm and on weekends, call the Leesburg Police Department non-emergency number at 703-771-4500.
Sanitary Sewer Manholes
Sanitary sewer manholes are access points to the Town's sanitary sewer system. If you notice anyone other than Town personnel opening a manhole, discharging liquids or other materials into a manhole, please report it using our online form or call the Utilities Department immediately! During normal business hours (Mon-Fri, 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.), please call 703-771-2750.
