What Happens if You Miss a Bill Payment?

Missing a Winston Salem City water bill can be a real challenge for your lifestyle.

  • If you pay late, Winston Salem adds a 10% late charge for the amount due, and you'll get a termination notice.
  • While you might stop the termination, there is still a $20 fee added, and the service may proceed to physically be terminated.
  • Missing a bill payment can require you to come back to the service with a deposit, often a deposit of one and a half times the average monthly bill amount.

This kind of headache can start with just forgetfulness, which is a real shame.
