Bill Payment Options

 Credit Card Auto Pay Option - Available through the Web Portal

The Indio Water Authority bills customers on a monthly basis. The amount is considered past due if not paid by the due date. Service may be discontinued if the bill has been delinquent for 60 days. If the service is discontinued, the past due balance plus applicable reconnection fees and prepayment requirements must be paid prior to service being restored.


As a service to our customers, the Indio Water Authority offers the following multiple convenient payment options:

This program is offered to all residential and business accounts in good standing with a history of no more than one returned check in the last 12 consecutive months.

Once the Form and a voided check stub are submitted, it may take up to two billing cycles for payments to be drafted directly out of your account. For additional information about the Indio Water Authority’s Auto-Pay/Direct Debit program, call Customer Service at (760) 391-4038.
