Detroiters now have the option of saving a stamp and skipping the lines by paying water bills at new kiosks placed around the city.
Customers can make payments at 37 kiosks located in 28 different locations, according to a news release from the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department.
The city in recent years has sought to make it easier for residents to make water bill payments, and for low-income customers to get on payment plans, since large-scale shutoffs began on delinquent accounts in 2014.
“We want to give our customers the convenience that the 28-location DivDat Kiosk Network offers,” DWSD Director Gary Brown said in a news release. “No longer will our customers have to wait in line at a DWSD Customer Care Center to pay their water bill, or rearrange their schedule to come to our centers. Many of the kiosk locations are open seven days-a-week.”
Customers can pay with cash, check or credit with no added fees. Other functions include reviewing account information using an address, account number or scanning a bill, and having the payment applied the same day.
Kiosks function in English, Spanish and Arabic.
