There is an online bill pay website that appears to be affiliated with MAWSA that it is not. is a third-party website that allows people to pay their bills via their site; however, may charge you extra fees, and MAWSA cannot control when we will receive the payments from, possibly resulting in late payments and associated, as well as disruption of service. To make sure you are paying MAWSA directly, visit use our "Bill Pay" link to the right or go to our payments page to do the same. The web portal for payments is also printed on your monthly statement.

If you receive suspicious phone calls, mail, or emails, from someone claiming to be a representative of MAWSA, requesting payment, please call us at the phone number printed on your monthly statement and ask for one of our office staff members (found on our staff page).
