Billing

Effective, July 1, 2016 NBWA began monthly billing. Bills are sent out the first week of the month and are due on the 28th of each month.

Actual vs Estimated Bills

Meters are currently being read every month to ensure clear and accurate billing. However, estimates may occasionally be used for one or two billing periods per quarter, as needed. In these instances, when an actual read is performed, the account will be reconciled by comparing actual usage with billed amounts.
