Alexandria, VA (May 17, 2022) – The Fiscal Year 2023 budget allows AlexRenew to fulfill our mission to the community through healthier waterways and continue construction on the largest infrastructure project in Alexandria’s history.

Fiscal Year 2023 Budget 
On May 17, 2022, AlexRenew held a public hearing to present its proposed budget of $221.4 million for Fiscal Year (FY) 2023, beginning July 1. The budget, formally adopted by the AlexRenew Board of Directors, includes $30.4 million of operating funds and a $123.6 million capital investment in its RiverRenew program. RiverRenew will prevent millions of gallons of combined sewage from polluting the Potomac River, Hunting Creek, and Hooffs Run each year, creating safer, cleaner, healthier waterways for the community, wildlife, and future generations.

Previously Adopted Rate Adjustment
In July 2021, AlexRenew adopted a two-year sewer rate adjustment to help fund the mandated RiverRenew program and support upgrades at our wastewater treatment facility to purify wastewater 24/7/365. Per the adopted two-year rate adjustment, sewer rates will increase by 6.5 percent starting on July 1, 2022. An average residential customer may see a difference of about $3 per month for this increase, an average increase of about $36 per year.
