Once the issue has been resolved and an actual read is done, if there is a discrepancy, it will be reflected in your next bill. Customers are encouraged to visit for information on checking for leaks or this page for information on conserving water.

Register your new utility account to access your balance and sign up for e-Billing

We are pleased to introduce e-Billing to our utility customers. As a result of this new feature, we have made some changes to our system.

1. Your account number has changed. Your new account number is a six-digit number. This new account number will be on the top right corner of all invoices received after May 21, 2018.

2. You no longer require an access code. Once you register, you can:

  • link your new account number
  • access your account balance online
  • sign up for e-billing  

If  you have not yet received an invoice with your new account number, you can request your account balance by email or by calling 250.474.9600.
