Bogue Banks Water Corporation accepts cash, checks, or money orders, as well as automatic payment through our draft program. You may also pay by credit/debit card online - just click the link on this page.
IMPORTANT! We will NEVER request or accept payment at the service address. Our meter techs will never accept payment from customers when out in the field.
SIGN UP FOR PAPERLESS BILLING! Interested in receiving your water bill in your email inbox? Sign up for paperless billing to stop receiving the postcard bill and we will email the bill to you. Go to the CUSTOMER SERVICE tab and send us your email address, along with your service address and/or account number. You can have the bill sent to multiple email addresses.
Online Payment Using a Credit/Debit Card: As of December 2014, online payments will be accepted through a new provider. Just click the red "Pay Your Bill Now" button on this page. There is a fee charged for payments by credit card, but you may also pay by Echeck without a convenience fee. Note: To set up online access you will need your 6 digit CID, which is found on the right half of your bill. See the sample bill at the bottom of this page to locate your CID.
Payment By Mail: If paying by check or money order through the mail, please be sure to include your account number. To avoid late fees, please mail your payment at least five-seven business days before the due date specified on your bill. All payments and other correspondence should be mailed to: PO Box 4009, Emerald Isle, NC 28594-4009.
Automatic Bank Draft: The worry-free way to pay your water bill. With this service, the amount of your monthly bill is automatically deducted from your bank checking account and credited to your utility account. There is no set-up fee or charge associated with this method of payment. You will still receive your bill, which will be marked "To Be Drafted."
To sign up for draft service, visit the Forms & Reports page to download the authorization form. If you need additional help, please give us a call. We will be happy to assist you. Bank draft payments are processed on the 15th of each month (or the next business day). Depending upon when the form is received, we may or may not be able to draft current balances.
Payment Drop-off Location: Our office is located at 7412 Emerald Dr., Emerald Isle, NC 28594, just behind the EI Police Dept. and under the BBWC water tower. We are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. When making a payment in person, payments can be made using cash, check, or money order. A night deposit drop box is available for after hours payments.
Payment Through Financial Institution Online Bill Pay: Many financial institutions such as major banks offer their customers the ability to pay their bills via an online bill payment service (through your bank's website). Normally, these services debit the customer's checking or savings account to pay the bill. Depending on the financial institution, they may or may not charge a fee for the service. Payments may take up to seven business days to post to the customer's account. Please consult with your bank for more information.
