Residents must sign up for Paperless Billing by Wednesday, May 31. After enrolling, they will no longer receive a water bill in the mail.

The discount will be capped at $150 and applied to eligible water bills within two billing cycles.

Customers already enrolled in the program automatically qualify and receive the one-time discount.

Follow these to steps to go paperless:

  • Select the option to sign up for paperless billing on the account summary page.
  • Verify your email address and then click the ok button.
