Hampton Roads Sanitation District

Hampton Roads Sanitation District

Hampton Roads Sanitation District, a political subdivision of the Commonwealth of Virginia, was created by public referendum in 1940 to eliminate sewage pollution in the tidal waters of the Chesapeake Bay. The mission of HRSD is to protect public health and the waters of Hampton Roads by treating wastewater effectively. In 1999 HRSD created the HRSD Environmental Scholarship at the Hampton Roads Community Foundation to support post-graduate study in a public Virginia university for a resident of HRSD’s service area studying environmental health, environmental chemistry, biology, or civil or environmental engineering.
