Water & Sewer Billing

To set up new water & sewer service or to disconnect current service, please contact Tea City Hall at 498-5191.

New service residents are charged a $50.00 water deposit; this is automatically attached to your first bill and is
refundable when you disconnect service.

We accept cash, check, Visa, Discover & MasterCard. A drive thru payment drop box is located at Tea City Hall as soon as you enter the parking lot. Set up automatic monthly withdrawals from your account for your utility bill.  Complete the form & return to City Hall.

 

Bills received are for the previous months usage.  For example, bill received the first week of February, due February 20th is January's usage.
Water & Sewer payments are due on the 20th of every month unless otherwise noted on the bill. $5.00 late fee applied for payments received after the due date stated on the bill.
