How To Read Your Bill

Your water bill is designed to provide the information you need to know about your account and to help you understand the charges on it. If you need additional help understanding your bill, please contact us at 203-562-4020 or ask.billing@rwater.com.

Charges on Your Water Bill

Your water bill is made up of a service charge and a usage charge. The service charge for the typical residential customer represents 36% of the water bill with the usage charge accounting for the remaining 64%.

The service charge covers the fixed costs for bringing water to your home so it's there any time you turn on a faucet.

The usage charge varies depending on how much water you have used in the preceding billing period. If you use less water, your usage charge will be lower. If you use more water, your usage charge will be higher.

If you are enrolled in the PipeSafe Emergency Protection Water and/or Sewer/Septic Repair programs, you will see these charges in the Charges area of your bill.

If you want to dispute a charge on your bill, you should contact our Customer Care team at 203-562-4020 or email ask.billing@rwater.com.
