Customer Rates, Payment and Billing Options
Rates for water service for Maine Water customers are approved by the Maine Public Utilities Commission (MPUC).
A reliable supply of high quality water is essential to our quality of life. It provides for public health, hygiene, proper sanitation, protection of lives and property through fire protection, and allows for economic development that leads to job creation and tax revenues. At a cost of less than a penny per gallon, Maine Water delivers all of the benefits of high quality water to its customers 24 hours per day. If one were to put a value of having clean, safe water – it would certainly be higher than a penny per gallon!
Your cost for water service will depend on how much water you actually use and which water system provides your water. As Maine water has acquired smaller water systems, each system had it own set of rates some higher and some lower than Maine Water. For a rate schedule that applies to your system please see our Rate Schedules or call a customer service representative at 1-800-287-1643.
