Billing & Payment Information

Attention Alexandria Customers: We're Transitioning to Monthly Billing in October

Beginning in October, Virginia American Water will be transitioning from quarterly to monthly billing for customers in the Alexandria area (who are not already billed monthly). Monthly billing allows you to receive more frequent and timely information about your water usage, and it can help you to detect leaks sooner. Detecting leaks early saves water and money! Learn more...

We offer several convenient payment options:

PAY AUTOMATICALLY. NO STAMPS REQUIRED.

Save time and money. Residential customers can sign up for our Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT), and your bill will be paid on time, every time, directly from your checking or savings account on the date it is due. No stamps required. You will still receive a copy of your bill before the due date, so you will have time to ask any questions before payment. Best of all, it’s totally free! To enroll in the program, log on to My H2O Online or contact our customer service center. NOTE: This is ONLY available for water customers at this time.

PAY ONLINE*

Residential customers can use our self-service website, My H2O Online, to pay bills, manage accounts and more. Sign up today. Commercial customers and any others who are unable to register on the site can pay online by visiting www.water.paymybill.comNOTE: This is ONLY available for water customers at this time.
