Step by Step Instructions for myBCWater Water Bill Payment System.

Extreme Weather Emergencies 

The Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) adopted rules prohibiting non-municipal public water and sewer utilities from disconnecting customers during extreme cold weather emergencies. The new rules prohibit utilities from disconnecting service or issuing late fees for nonpayment of bills due during such emergencies, including for bills previously due.

By rule, extreme cold weather emergencies are periods beginning when the previous day’s highest temperature in an area did not exceed 28 degrees Fahrenheit, and the temperature is predicted to remain at or below that level for the next 24 hours according to the nearest National Weather Service reports for that area. An extreme weather emergency ends on the second business day the temperature exceeds 28 degrees Fahrenheit.

Under the new rules, affected customers have a 30-day window to request a payment plan. If a customer makes a request within 30 days, the service provider must offer them a payment plan. All non-municipal water and sewer utilities are required to notify their customers of the new rules by Jan. 31, 2023.

The new rules are required under Senate Bill 3, passed by the 87th Texas Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Greg Abbott.
