We wanted to take the opportunity to draw your attention to some helpful tips.

We have created a 2-page flyer with some helpful information for new customers we think you'll find informative: English or in Española


Ask your friends what they pay for tap water, and they will usually quote the total from their water bill—and that would be the right answer if they live in Poquoson, York County, or James City County. But if they live in Hampton or Newport News, that’s not the case. Waterworks serves as a “billing agent” for services provided by Hampton and Newport News Public Works. In these jurisdictions, the total owed (the bottom line on the water bill) includes sewer maintenance and solid waste (trash and recycling) fees. Think of it as Waterworks providing a service to the two Public Works departments. We’re sending bills out anyway, so why not cut down on postage by combining water and other City utility fees onto one bill? And just so there isn’t any confusion, the money collected for the Public Works fees go to the appropriate Public Works departments—we don’t keep it! So to our customers in Hampton and Newport News, keep in mind that sometimes the water bill goes up and it’s not because of the water.
