Billing and Water Rates & Fees


Lookout Mountain Water District customers are billed at the end of each month and payment is due by the 20th of the following month.  If you did not receive your monthly bill, a customer should request a copy, or call for an amount, and still make a payment.  If a customer’s automatic or any other payment method does not work, the customer is still responsible to pay the bill by the due date.

Please go to Payment Options for how to access your account online, the remittance address and how to make auto-payments, e-payments or credit card payments.
