Water Utility Services and Bill Payments

Water Service Payment Options

All city offices are now closed to the public.  No in-person bill payments can be made at this time.  We offer a variety of payment methods.  They are all listed below.  Please note that the online processing fee for paying online will be temporarily waived starting March 18, 2020.

If you are experiencing a financial hardship due to the coronavirus, please contact our water customer service department to put a temporary hold on your account or to set up an installment payment plan.

We are suspending all water disconnection for the time being.  Please note that if you do not contact us to place a hold or set up a payment plan, or fail to pay your water bill by the 15th of the month late fees will still be applied.

  • Pay By Mai
    We accept checks and money orders (we do not recommend mailing cash).  If you are mailing your payment please make sure to include the name and the account number the payment should be credited to.  Please make your payment payable to The City of Belmont and mail it to:

  • Pay Online
    Water customers can sign up for the WaterSmart portal and pay your water bill online.  All you need is your account number and zip code (hint: everyone that has water service in Belmont has a 28012 zip code).  The online processing fee will be temporarily waived for all online payments at this time.
