How to Pay Your Bill

Online Payment

The Public Service Commission of Wisconsin requires a convenience charge for payments by phone and online using credit cards and eCheck. Make a one-time payment online with Discover Card, MasterCard, VISA, or eCheck. The eCheck option allows payment directly from a checking or savings account. An email address is required so we may acknowledge the payment. At Information, enter your account number. The convenience fee for service provided by U.S. Bank for use of a credit card for online payment is 2.5% of the payment. The fee for online eCheck service is $0.75 per transaction. Generally, the City of Milwaukee does not issue refunds for these payments.

Automatic pay plan

Have payment of bills automatically withdrawn from your bank account. Partial payment of a bill is not available with this option. Register online at or request a form to mail from Customer Service at (414) 286-2830. The Milwaukee Water Works will automatically withdraw the amount due each billing from your account; you will not have to write a check. You will continue to receive a paper copy of your bill. Please allow six to eight weeks for the service to take effect. When it does, you will be notified on your bill.  To change your banking information or cancel the authorization, call Customer Service at (414) 286-2830.
