I Can’t Make a Payment
When we spoke to the customer service representative at Regional Water Authority, they did not provide us with any information regarding assistance to customers that can’t pay your bill. There gave us the customer service number, 1-203-562-4020, but nothing else relevant to assistance programs. We found information on water conservation, which could lead to a lower monthly bill, but no assistance programs.
