Winter moratorium ends March 31

 

Philadelphia residents with delinquent water bills are urged to pay their bill or enter into a payment agreement before March 31, which is the end of the winter moratorium for shut-offs. Beginning April 1, residents with past due bills of $75 or more and are past due for two or more billing periods, may have their water service shut-off.

To make an agreement, customers can call the Water Revenue Department at 215-686-6880 or visit the office at 1401 JFK Blvd., Concourse Level. The Department of Revenue/Water Revenue Bureau has expanded their businesses hours to 7 p.m. (Monday – Thursday) and from 10 AM – 2 PM on Saturday.

“It’s very important that water customers who may be facing shut-off contact us immediately,” says Clarena I.W. Tolson, Chief Collections Officer and Revenue Commissioner. “We don’t want anyone to be inconvenienced, especially since there are assistance programs available.”
