The MWA maintains some of the most affordable rates among water and sewer utilities in the state of Georgia. Beginning Jan. 1, 2021, MWA residential and non-residential customers will experience a slight increase in their water and sewer variable rates, based on consumption. The consumptions rates for water and sewer will only increase 5 cents per CCF, which is a unit of measurement equivalent to 748 gallons. However, base rates for water and sewer will remain the same as last year.

After establishing a partnership with local retailers to establish Quick Pay Service this summer, the MWA’s newest payment option is catching on with customers. According to Authority officials, since the inception of the Quick Pay Service in May, approximately 1,500 customers had utilized this convenient payment option to the tune of more than $76,000 in payments. At this current rate of customer adoption of Quick Pay Service, the MWA might eclipse 2,500 customer accounts by the end of the year. Quick Pay Service offers MWA customers the ability to pay their water/sewer bill at 18 area retailers scattered across Macon-Bibb, Houston and Monroe Counties. The participating Quick Pay retailers include eight Kroger stores, eight Walmart stores, as well as Macon Check Cashing and Discount Check Cashier of Macon. However, these locations can only accept payments on your MWA bill and are not staffed to help with other customer service activities. For the complete list of the 18 MWA Quick Pay Authorized Payment Locations (APL’s) available for your convenience, check out the "Learn More" link below. Learn More »
