Payment system FAQ

As part of IRWD’s commitment to improve the way we provide service to our customers, we have transitioned to a new payment system. This new payment system includes no payment fees, enhanced billing information, easy access to conservation tips, electronic billing (eBill), improved security measures, and online recurring automatic (AutoPay) payments.

Here are answers to questions customers may have about the new payment system, which took effect in February 2021.
