Understanding Your Bill

Your Louisiana Water Company customer service office or payment location, business hours and emergency telephone numbers are listed at the top of your statement. If we are providing third party billing and collection services at that service address, the name of that third party and their contact telephone number is listed at the top of the statement as well.

The first line of your statement includes your 15-digit customer account number and the service address that corresponds with the service location. The date of the current meter reading is also provided there.

Each month a meter reader records the reading from your meter. Last month's meter reading is subtracted from the current reading to determine the number of units of water that have gone through the meter during the billing period. You are sent a monthly statement for the corresponding amount of water and applicable taxes and government fees. Each meter reading (current and previous) is listed in the Billing Summary for Water Service along with the number of units of water. The unit of measure is listed above the number of units of water. The corresponding charge for the measured amount of water is listed under the column. Each unit of water measured represents 100 gallons.

The date by which your payment needs to be received by us is listed under the Billing Summary boxes. To avoid penalty, please ensure your payment is received by us on or before the date indicated. For a complete list of methods to pay your bill, please visit our Payment Options section.

A detachable stub is provided at the bottom of the statement. If you are paying by mail, please detach the stub and include it in the envelope with your payment. Always write your 15-digit customer account number on your payment. This ensures proper posting should your payment become separated from your stub. Your 15-digit customer account number is located on the left side of the first line of your statement.
