Water & Sewer Billing

To set up new water sewer service or to disconnect current service, please contact Tea City Hall at (605) 498-4994.

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 and MasterCard. A drive-up payment drop box is located at the parking lot entrance of Tea City Hall. Set up automatic monthly withdrawals from your account for your utility bill. To set up automatic payments or pay your bill online click here.

Bills received are for the previous months usage. For example, bill received the first week of February is due February 20th for this 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.
