Gwinnett County Water Resources is committed to providing our residents with consistent, high-quality drinking water, safe wastewater management, and effective stormwater services.

New Water Bill Layout
In keeping with the Gwinnett County commitment to clear and open communication with citizens, the Department of Water Resources is releasing a new water bill layout. The new bill rolls out on March 16, 2020 in both print and e-bill formats.
The colorful new layout represents Gwinnett’s dynamic, vibrant community. Information regarding due dates, total charges, and special messages is now easier for customers to locate at a glance. The addition of a histogram shows water usage over the past 13 months. Customers can use this information to find spikes in usage, which could indicate a leak or highlight the need for conservation strategies.
The bottom of the paper bill is still the payment coupon. This section is sent in with a mailed payment. As always, when mailing payments, customers should allow two weeks for processing. The mailing address for payments will remain the same.
Paperless customers can expect their bill to come from a new email address, email@example.com. Customers can directly link to the payment site from their email. Customers can still pay their bill in person at our Lawrenceville office, or by calling our 24-hour automated phone system at 678.376.6800.
Paying online is the fastest and most convenient way to pay. To make an online payment, customers can visit www.gwinnetth2o.com/paymybill. Through the website, customers can set up a profile or make a quick payment. Customers can also set up secure auto payments, which will automatically charge their credit cards or draft from their bank accounts on the bill’s due date.
Customers can call Gwinnett DWR’s Customer Care team with any questions about the new bill layout during regular business hours at 678.376.6800.
