Billing and Accounts

The Water Revenue Bureau (WRB) handles most aspects of the water and sewer billing, including creating bills and collecting payments for Philadelphia Water Department customers. Please visit WRB's site for more information on topics such as:

Rates

As the cost of water utility services rise steadily across the country, PWD works hard to deliver safe, clean drinking water to you in a cost-effective manner.

Regulations

PWD regulations define the terms of services provided by the department. These include customer rights and responsibilities, guidelines for making connections to PWD infrastructure, and departmental policies.

Customer Responsibilities

Once drinking water leaves the PWD water main in the street, keeping the water flowing becomes the customer's responsibility.
