About your bill

If you own a property, you'll get a bill from us. Generally, this is for your water and wastewater services, but there could be other charges.

We send most bills quarterly, after we've read the meter. If you don't have a meter, we send the bill at the start of each quarter.

If you'd like monthly bills, simply ask us to read your meter monthly.

It costs $36.06 a quarter and the fee will appear on the first bill each quarter.

To arrange it, just call us on 13 20 92.
We understand that it might be hard to pay your bill. If you're having difficulties, we have a range of options to help with your bill.

If you receive a pension, we may give you a rebate on your bill. You must own and live in your home to qualify.

Contact us

Simply contact us and we'll give you a statement that shows the amounts we charged you and the payments we received on your last five bills. 

Need more history 

If you need information that's older than your last five bills, you need to pay $34.53 for a billing record search statement through Sydney Water Tap inTM

We charge you for each service you're connected to. We call them fixed charges and they're for water and wastewater services. You can only stop a fixed charge if a licensed plumber disconnects you from that service.

Your plumber must apply for the disconnection at  Sydney Water Tap in™ and follow our rules first.

You can't disconnect from stormwater services because there's no actual connection - even if you're in our stormwater area.

If you get a bill from us, it should look like the one below.
