Serving our community and protecting waterways

AlexRenew is the wastewater treatment authority for Alexandria and parts of Fairfax County. Each year, our team processes approximately 13 billion gallons of wastewater it receives from area homes, schools, and businesses, before safely returning it to our waterways.


RiverRenew is the largest infrastructure initiative in the history of Alexandria. RiverRenew includes multiple projects that consist of a new tunnel system and upgrades to Alexandria's wastewater treatment facility.
