Paying Your Bill
Water and Sewer bills can be paid in person at the Parkersburg Utility Board Billing and Collections Office on the second floor of the Parkersburg City Building.
Payments may also be left in one of three drop boxes located at the City Building. The main drop box is located at the drive up window located under the walkway to the fountain, a second drop box is located by the front door and the third is located by the back door. Payments are collected from the boxes at 8:00 a.m. each business day.
Payments may also be made by ACH Direct Debit. The Parkersburg Utility Board can automatically deduct your monthly bill from your checking or savings account on the due date. There is no charge for this service. Contact the Billing and Collections Dept. for more information on this service.
Master Card, Visa and Discover are accepted in person. Telephone payment by credit card is not currently accepted.

Requesting a Final Bill
If you are moving, call the Billing and Collections Dept. to final or close your account. Service can be disconnected any regular business day, Monday through Friday. Your meter will be read to determine your final bill. If a new resident has not signed up for service, the water will be turned off.
Applying for a Leak Adjustment
After a water leak has been repaired, you may apply for a leak adjustment to your water and sewer bill. Leak adjustments are not granted for leaks in fixtures, appliances, or hoses. To determine eligibility, the customer should provide the details about the leak and a picture of the repair to the customer service department for consideration for a bill adjustment.
If your leak adjustment request is approved, your bill will be adjusted based on your usage history and the billing rates.
If your leak adjustment request is denied, then the customer will be responsible to pay the full amount of the bill.
