The Town of Purcellville water and sewer rates are based on the volume of water consumed. The amount a resident pays for sewer is directly related to the amount of water used regardless if the use is indoors and sewer-related or outdoors and not sewer related. Water bills are issued for a two month period. Average household use is between 200 and 300 gallons per day without outside water uses such as lawn watering, car washing and pool filling. A lawn sprinkler can use 450 gallons per hour. Outside uses can easily double and triple average household usage. We have also found that residents in new homes may experience higher water use than at their previous home. This could be caused by the high pressure in the Town system. If you do not already have a pressure reducer, installing one may help.
