Billing for Residential Customers
To verify if your property is in the City of Falls Church sanitary sewer system please use the Sanitary Sewer Account Lookup Tool.
For residential customers, sewer usage is based on winter-quarter water consumption or the actual water consumption during the current billing period, whichever is lower. This prevents residential customers from being charged sewer rates on water used outdoors during the warmer months, because it does not drain to the sanitary sewer system.
The City of Falls Church prorates this amount on initial and final bills based on average winter-quarter consumption.

Billing for Commercial Customers
Commercial customers' sewer use is based on actual water consumption. Some commercial customers use meters to separately measure water that does not drain to the sanitary sewer system, such as water used for irrigation or cooling systems.
