Local governments own and maintain collection systems. The collection systems convey flow to the HRSD regional collection and treatment system for proper treatment and disposal. Regional wastewater initiatives for Hampton Roads municipal utilities and the Hampton Roads Sanitation District (HRSD) are coordinated through the HRPDC Directors of Utilities Committee. Hampton Roads is served by separate sanitary sewer systems. Local wastewater collection systems convey flows to the HRSD regional collection and treatment system for proper treatment and disposal.
The HRSD, in cooperation with the Hampton Roads localities, has developed an integrated plan to reduce sanitary sewer system overflows, to address regulatory and environmental obligations, and to protect the region's water resources. More information is available at the links below:
Areas outside of the service area use onsite septic systems.
