My water bill seems low. What could cause this?

Number of days in thje reading period. If the number of days in your current read period is lower than the number of days in your prior read period, your current bill may be less. You can check the number of days in the Water Consumption Chart on your bill or in the MyOnlineBill section of our web site.

Reduced water usage. You may have been on vacation or away from your home for an extended period of time .

Water Conservation. You may have purchased a front loading washing machine. Front loading washers use less water. Or you may have installed a new low flow toilet or some other low flow device.

Fault Meter. If none of the items above apply to you, please contact Portland Water District at 207-761-8310 to speak with a Customer Service Representative. Your water meter may need to be serviced.
