EVANSVILLE, IND. – Evansville Water and Sewer Utility did not charge late fees or disconnect services for customers who were inconvenienced by late billing issues this fall.

EWSU customers who need more time to pay the past due amount are urged to call EWSU Customer Service at 812-436-7846 before the due date to setup payment arrangements and avoid additional fees. Customers may also request payment arrangements online. Visit ewsu.com and click Account & Billing, then select Payment Arrangements.
