Start Service

We connect service Monday through Friday 8:00am to 5:00pm and can schedule up to 14 days in advance. We do not offer same day service for new service requests. Please allow up to 2 business days to complete.

The non-refundable activation fee is $60 for residential accounts. This includes transfer of service in which one account is closed and a new account is opened. A security deposit is required for all commercial accounts, and we also offer landlord agreements.

We do not connect on standard holidays, weekends, or after normal business hours. We can schedule connections by calendar date only. Because the routes our technicians observe are set out each morning based on the previous days' orders, we cannot set hourly schedules.

  • If you are an existing customer, log in to your account on the side of this page to start service.
  • If you are a new customer, use our Start Service Online Form to begin.

At this time, we are not affiliated with any third-party payment services nor do we have satellite locations which take payments on our behalf. Payments made through non-affiliated vendors are often delayed in reaching us, so it’s better to pay DWR directly using the many payment options we offer.

Past Due Accounts

If your service has been interrupted, make your payment in person at our Lawrenceville office located at 684 Winder Highway or with a live representative over the phone from 8:00am to 5:00pm Monday through Friday (excluding holidays).

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.

Fraudulent Web Domain

The shortcut web URL for DWR is www.Gwinnetth2o.com. A non-affiliated party has purchased gwinnetth20.com, with a zero instead of “o,” and requests payment information from visitors to the site for a fee. This website is not owned by or affiliated with DWR, and DWR never charges our customers a fee to make a payment. Any payments made through this fraudulent website are often delayed in reaching us. Please contact us with any questions.
