How to Pay Your Dorchester County Water Bill Online, By Phone, or By Mail

Having running water in your home is something most of us take for granted. But we have to remember to pay the bill to keep that water flowing! As a customer of Dorchester County Water Authority (DCWA) in South Carolina, I want to explain your options for paying your water bill conveniently and on time.

Pay Online

The easiest way to pay your DCWA water bill is on their secure website Just go to DCWAonlinecom/Pay-Online and have your account number ready.

You can either pay as a guest once or, better yet, make an account. Making an account allows you to:

  • View statements and account balance
  • Check your water usage
  • Set up automatic monthly payments
  • Store payment methods for faster checkout

Online payments are processed by Payment Service Network (PSN) which meets the highest security standards. You can pay by credit card, debit card, or e-check right on the DCWA website.

I love the convenience of paying online 24/7. You get instant payment confirmation and avoid late fees.

Pay By Phone

Pick up the phone and call PSN at 1-877-885-7968 to pay your DCWA water bill. You can use this toll-free automated phone system at any time to pay with a credit or debit card or an e-check.

Have your latest water bill handy to enter your DCWA account number. You can also choose the option to speak with a PSN agent if you have any questions or need help processing your payment.

Pay By Mail

To pay your water bill by check or money order, mail your payment to:

Dorchester County Water Authority
P.O. Box 250
Summerville, SC 29484

Write your DCWA account number on the check or include your payment stub. Mailed payments take 5-7 days to process, so don’t procrastinate! Send your payment at least a week before the due date to avoid late fees.

Pay In Person (Not Available)

Please note – Dorchester County Water Authority does not accept in-person payments. You must pay your water bill online, by phone, or by mail.

Avoid Late Payments

I recommend setting up automatic monthly payments through your online DCWA account. This automatically withdraws your water bill from your bank account each month. It’s the easiest, most reliable way to avoid late fees and service interruptions.

If you do miss a payment, contact DCWA immediately to discuss options. For qualified customers, they may offer:

  • Payment arrangements to pay past due balance over time
  • One-time adjustment of late fees
  • Low-income financial assistance

Don’t wait to call if you expect trouble paying your next water bill. The sooner you contact DCWA, the more options are available to regain good standing.

Review of Payment Options:

Let’s recap how Dorchester County Water Authority customers can pay their water bills:

  • Online – Pay anytime on
  • Phone – Call PSN at 1-877-885-7968 to pay
  • Mail – Send check to P.O. Box 250, Summerville, SC

For maximum convenience, I recommend paying through your online account or setting up auto-pay. But DCWA offers flexibility with online, phone, and mail payments too.
