Paying Your Bill

Understanding Your Bill

Our goal is to provide you with an informative, detailed monthly statement that helps you better understand your water use and how you are charged for it. To make your bill easier to read, we have divided it into several easy-to-understand sections. The diagrams below provide a brief explanation of each section. 

If you need additional help understanding your bill, please contact us at 210-704-SAWS (7297) or
