New! EBills are now available to Tumwater Property Owners and Commercial Business Accounts. This service is not available to Current Tenants at this time.

When your request for Paperless Billing has been processed, you will receive an email confirmation that eBill service has been activated. Your monthly eBill will arrive by email as a PDF attachment on the next billing cycle.

  • If you do not receive an email message to confirm your eBill request, please check your spam or junk mail folder.
  • You may need to add utilitybilling@ci.tumwater.wa.us to your address book to receive eBills.
  • If you do not receive an eBill by the 1st day of the month, contact the Utility Billing team for assistance. 

Please remember, you are responsible for timely payment of all amounts due on your account. If payment is not processed or completed by the due date, the amount due will be treated in accordance with late payment policies.

Billing Dates

Utility bills are generated during the last week of the month, and mailed on the last day of the month. Payments are due the 25th day of every month. Utility payments may not appear on your statement if they received after the 26th, but will be on the following month's statement and your online account.

Payments must be received by the due date in order to avoid a penalty fee.

Leak-Related Bill Adjustments

A one-time bill credit can be requested during the life of the utility account, for excess consumption used due to a leak. A leak adjustment must be requested by the owner. Documentation of the repair (receipts/invoices) must be submitted along with the leak adjustment request form. A maximum of three consecutive billing cycles may be adjusted, and compared to the same time period for the past 2 years. If consumption history is not available, additional time may be needed to establish an estimated consumption amount to use for the adjustment. 

Low Income Seniors and Disability Discounted Rates 

The City of Tumwater's Lifeline Program offers discounted utility rates to qualifying low income seniors (62 and over) and low-

income citizens with disabilities whose water is separately metered.
