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. In the interest of public safety, the Dinwiddie County Water Authority is suspending disconnection of water service for nonpayment and late fees until further notice in accordance with the Governor’s recent mandate.  Customers are encouraged to continue making payments on time to avoid the accumulation of larger than normal account balances when disconnections are reinstated.



Front Lobby

To protect yourself and our staff, we are allowing only one customer at a time in the lobby.  We ask that you please wait outside until the person before you has left.  Try to maintain a distance of 6 feet between you and others.
