IMPORTANT DATE TO REMEMBER

Rate increases took effect on April 1, 2020. Rate increases have been designed to recover a loss in revenue due to more than expected leak repairs, to meet projected buget costs, for upgrading our outdated service lines, and to upgrade meters.
RAWS Board of Directors has been continuing to strive for more efficiency, and to absorb and realign costs. While Board of Directors work diligently to keep the cost down, these increases are necessary to maintain and make improvements to our current system and to remain in compliance with Texas Water Development Board Debt Service requirements.
As a reminder, you are responsible for paying your bill whether your bill is delivered electronically or by regular mail. Also, it is your responsibility to inform RAWS of any address changes (email or mailing), as well as any credit card/banking info that you wish to keep on file. RAWS is not responsible for unpaid bills due to these reasons.
You are responsible to pay your bill whether it was received or not. Please call our office to verify account status.
