Evansville Water and Sewer Utility Opens Bill Relief Program Application to Customers

UPDATE: The Evansville Water and Sewer Utility (EWSU) has made two important changes to the Bill Relief Program previously announced: The monthly credit is increasing from $3 to $10 a month, and the eligibility requirements have been revised to exclude County residents. The changes stemmed from the Evansville City Council's approval on use of the City's allocation of American Rescue Plan funds.

Customers with active city water service who apply for the program and qualify will receive a $10 monthly credit applied to their account each month for one year. The credit offsets the 2022 water rate increase, which will be $2.27 per month effect July 1 (assuming an average monthly water use of 5,000 gallons). After one year, customers may have the opportunity to reapply for the program for an additional 12 months. Dollars not used for the utility bill relief credit will be allocated to provide assistance to income-eligible customer in disconnect status.
