Paying your bill
Every other month, you will receive a postcard bill from the West Suburban Water Commission, and we offer several ways for you to pay your water bill.
- We accept payment in the form of cash, check, money orders and credit cards. Please make checks payable to: West Suburban Water Commission
- Mail or drop off your payment. The office is open Monday thru Friday from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM. A drop box is located outside the building for your convenience when the office is closed. Payments can be mailed to:
West Suburban Water Commission
7000 S. Archer Road
Justice, IL 60458
- Sign up for automatic payment (ACH Debit) through your checking or savings account. You will receive a bill, but the payments will be made from your bank automatically. ACH Debit is a secure transaction. To sign up, simply fill out this form.
A 10% penalty will be added to the unpaid balance if not paid on or before the due date. Payments must be received by 4:30 on the day the bill is due to avoid the penalty. Failure to receive the bill does not excuse the penalty charge.
New Customers: All new customers are required to pay a Security Deposit as stated in the Water Commission Rules and Regulations, which is available at our office. Upon request, the deposit will be refunded after two years of on-time payments or in the event your property is sold.

I need information on my past water usage, how can I get that?
My bill seems really high, what should I do?
- The most common cause of high water bills is a leak.
- First, make sure your toilet isn’t running. This is the most common cause of a high water bill. A simple test will tell you. Put a few drops of food coloring in the tank, but don’t flush. If the water in the bowl changes color in a few minutes, you have a leak.
- Check the water meter. If the dial is moving and there is no water being used, you have a leak.
- You can always call the office if you have additional questions. 708-458-7010
