AlexRenew's Fiscal Year 2024 Budget to Support Healthier Waterways
AlexRenew adopts a sewer rate adjustment over the next two years to help fund its mandated RiverRenew program. The adjustment will also support upgrades at our wastewater treatment facility to clean wastewater 24/7/365 and manage additional wet weather flows delivered as part of RiverRenew.
This investment in Alexandria’s clean water future requires AlexRenew to increase existing wastewater treatment rates by 5.4 percent on July 1, 2023, and by 5.1 percent on July 1, 2024. An average residential customer may see a difference of about $2.70 per month for each of these increases.
The two-year rate adjustment will be the third rate increase in support of RiverRenew. Future additional rate increases are anticipated until 2026 to pay for RiverRenew program debt service.
The $615 million RiverRenew program is the largest infrastructure project in Alexandria’s history and will prevent millions of gallons of combined sewage from polluting the Potomac River, Hunting Creek, and Hooffs Run each year. This will create safer, cleaner, healthier waterways for the community, wildlife, and future generations. Implementation of this historic program is a direct extension of AlexRenew’s vital mission to manage wastewater and keep the community healthy through healthier waterways.
