Depending on the city and water provider in question, you can pay your water bill in person, by phone, by mail or online. City websites list the relevant mailing address, drop-off location, phone number and online payment link.
Each payment method comes with its benefits and downsides. Paying on location ensures that your payment makes it to the right location, although it also entails finding the right drop-off location. Payments by mail are easy to make but take time to reach their destination. Online and phone payments occur instantly from your home, and many city websites have features to protect personal information.
