Mesa Water Expands Online Bill Pay Options for Customers

Switching to Paperless Billing Saves Paper, Money and Water

Costa Mesa, Calif.; August 23, 2013Mesa Water District (Mesa Water) has expanded its online bill paying service that, in addition to allowing customers to schedule regular bi-monthly payments online, offers an option to make a one-time only payment.

Switching to paperless bill payment options with Mesa Water is simple.  Customers may visit MesaWater.org and click on one of three options:  Sign Me Up, Login, or Make a One-Time Payment.

By signing up to receive bills electronically, Mesa Water customers are conserving valuable resources.  There are typically four pieces of paper in each billing statement, which requires ten gallons of water to produce.  Eliminating paper statements conserves the four pieces of paper and the ten gallons of water needed to create them.

In addition to creating an online account, Mesa Water customers can now choose a one-time payment option called Quick Pay, allowing customers to make one-time only payments without needing to log in. Customers need only use their customer account number, service address, and a valid credit card or checking account number to make a one-time payment.

“For each Mesa Water customer that switches to our online bill pay service, there’s a water savings of 63 gallons a year per customer just from the paper that makes up the bill,” explains Paul Shoenberger, Mesa Water’s General Manager. He continues, “If all 24,000 Mesa Water bill statements were generated through the paperless billing program, it would conserve 1.5 million gallons of water each year.”

From 2008 to 2011, Mesa Water customers saved almost a half million gallons of water just by receiving and paying their bills online. More than 8,500 customers are currently signed up for Mesa Water’s online bill pay program.
