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, 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.

Utility Scams

Federal Credits Scam

A scam is currently circulating nationwide in which scammers claim that the president or the federal government will provide credits or apply payments to utility bills. Residents may be contacted by email, mail, social media, text, or direct phone calls. The scammers request residents’ Social Security numbers and other personal information, and then give victims fraudulent banking information to use to pay their utility bills.

  • Do not provide your personal or financial information to anyone you do not know.
  • If you suspect you have been contacted by these scammers, contact your local police department.
  • Do not attempt to make payments for utility bills using financial information from someone else.
