Automatic Draft Payments

BANK DRAFT PAYMENTS: Paying your water bill is easier than ever with our automatic checking account payment program setup directly through the Clear Lake City Water Authority either in-person at our office, by mail to the address listed above, or by email to, using the application provided below. By using the program, the charge for water and sewer service is automatically deducted from your designated checking account at no extra cost to you.

We will need a completed AUTOMATIC DRAFT APPLICATION (Adobe Reader 6.0 or higher required.) and a voided check returned to our office.

If you live in HCWCID 161, please use the following application: HCWCID 161 AUTOMATIC DRAFT APPLICATION

ONLINE PAYMENTS: To make a one-time payment or setup automatic reoccurring payments online follow the online portal link “PAY WATER BILL” provided above, fees will apply to each payment.

When your automatic draft is activated, you will see the message on your bill: “Do not pay. Your account will be drafted.” Accounts are drafted approximately two business days prior to the due date shown on the bill. Until you see that message printed on your bill, please continue to pay the bill in your usual manner. If you have a question or problem with your bill, please call Customer Service as soon as possible. We will do our best to work out a solution quickly.

If you have previously set up automatic payment arrangements through either our office directly or with the third party vendor and wish to change the method of payment you will need to contact our office to ensure you are not double drafted.

*** Automatic Payments set up through our previous third party vendor (First Billing) for both bank checking drafts and credit card payments are now deactivated as of October 1, 2022.*** Please follow the link above “PAY WATER BILL” to set up new automatic payments.
