MWA Won't Enforce Penalties During Software Outage

Since Oct. 27, 2019, the MWA has been unable to access its customer service software, including the self-service web portal, because of detected Ransomware. While the Authority is working to restore these connections, the utility is not at a point in the process where it can estimate when its system will be back online. During this time, the MWA will not be applying late penalties, administrative fees, or enforcement actions -- which include the disconnection of services and the reporting of delinquent accounts to credit bureaus. Customers will be given ample time to pay their balances before enforcement actions resume. We apologize for the obvious inconvenience this is causing customers wanting to pay their bills via these electronic methods. The MWA remains open for business during normal office hours, when customers can make payments via cash or check at the Second Street Headquarters. For questions, contact us at 478-464-5600 or 478-464-5650 (after hours), or via email at
