What to Do When You Can’t Pay Your El Paso Water Bill

Questions About Your Billing Statement or Account?
Although the majority of water companies disclose fees for customer, El Paso Water does not do a stellar job disclosing fees associated with your billing statement or account. In the event you have questions or concerns regarding your El Paso Water billing statement or account, we recommend visit the El Paso Water Customer Resource Page. For additional information, you should contact custoemr service at 1-915-594-5500.
How the Penalty Fees Work
El Paso Water charges a deposit to all residents applying for service. The charge for a single family home is $75. There may be an additional deposit of $75 for sewer service.
While no other fees are listed, consumers complain of late payment fees and connection charges associated with disconnection and reconnection. A returned check fee could also be assessed by El Paso Water.
I Can’t Make a Payment
El Paso Water does not directly address payment options for customers having trouble making payment on-time. When we contacted the customer service department, the agent told us there was a payment plan available for customers having trouble making a payment. The details of the payment arrangement are only available to current customers.
Will They Work With Me to Pay My Bill?
There is very little information on how El Paso Water works with customers to resolve past due bills. We have heard rumors that the company is quick to shut off water if a bill is not paid on-time, so we suggest contacting the customer service department at 1-915-594-5500 as soon as you realize you cannot make a payment. Did this company work with you to pay down a past due balance?
