For your convenience, the Water Utility Authority offers Budget Billing.
The Water Authority's Budget Billing is a free service that evenly distributes and maintains consistency for the cost of your water, sewer, and refuse services over a twelve month period. Your monthly budget payment amount is based on the average twelve month consumption for the preceding twelve months. Budget Billing begins on the next billing cycle after your application is received and processed by the Customer Service Division.
Participants are required to make on-time monthly payments for the entire twelve month period. Inconsistent payments will cause participants to be removed from the Budget Billing Plan and additional delinquency fees may apply. Effective every January, if it is found that the customer paid more or less than the actual twelve month billed charges, the over or under paid amount is adjusted to the estimated cost of the service for the following year's Budget Billing. Customers with questions about Budget Billing may call a Customer Care Representative at (505) 842-9287 (WATR) for assistance.
