About Us

The Maury Service Authority (MSA) was founded in 1971 in order to build a water treatment plant to serve the City of Lexington and Rockbridge County.  In 1996 the charter was amended so that the MSA could build a wastewater treatment plant.  Today, the MSA owns the Maury Service Authority Water Treatment Plant and the Lexington-Rockbridge Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant.

The MSA is a political subdivision of the Commonwealth of Virginia formed under the Virginia Water and Sewer Authorities Act.  It is governed by a five member board of directors.
