Pay Water Bill via Payment Portal


Directions to set up payment portal

  • The new portal will ask you to create a new profile, using your name, email and a password that you create.
  • Once that is completed, you will be logged in. From that new screen, you will select “Add Account”. You will then be asked to put in your address (do not spell out St Dr or Ave, use the normal abbreviation) and your existing account number.
  • Once you save, you will be all set to pay your utility bills, and see your 12-month history.
  • If you choose to pay your bills without creating a new account, from the portal page just select “Quick Pay” and enter your payment information. Using this method will not show you the payment history for the account.
