Effective August 1, 2018, the Macon Water Authority (MWA) will add a convenience fee to all customer credit and debit card transactions.

If bills are in excess of $500, customers can pay by credit card, but it will require multiple transactions, with the appropriate fee applied. Likewise, the MWA will charge 2.75% of the total transaction for non-residential customers who pay their bill with a credit/debit card. The MWA accepts VISA, MasterCard, and Discover.

While pouring fats, oils and grease (FOG) down the sink may seem harmless enough, these substances harden and eventually clog sewer lines. As a result, “FOG clogs” create sewer spills and overflows that can release untreated wastewater into our creeks, rivers, streams and lakes. Not only does that harm our environment, it can affect the rivers and streams that provide us with our drinking water. Please help protect your home’s plumbing, our sewer system, and the environment, by not pouring FOG down your drain. Instead, let grease cool, pour it into a sealed container, and throw it in the trash. Also, wipe dishes and utensils clean before placing them in the dish washer or prior to washing them in the sink. To help you keep your home FOG-free, the MWA has a limited number of free, reusable grease can covers available at our headquarters for your use. For additional grease education, check out our "Learn More" link below. Learn More »
