WATER BILLING (734) 467-3175 - The Finance Department processes payments for water and sewer bills. The City of Westland services approximately 26,000 customers with water from the City of Detroit Water System. Water meters are read electronically by City staff using a hand-held device and customers are billed bi-monthly. All meters have a red triangular leak indicator that moves when water is being used. If no water is being used and the red leak indicator is moving, check faucets, toilets, sprinkler systems and other water supplied appliances for leaks.
Water billing questions please contact the billing department at 734-467-3175 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

AUTOMATIC WATER BILL PAYMENT SERVICE - Our Automatic Bill Payment service allows your water and sewer bill to be automatically paid from any participating bank or credit union account. You will receive your statement at least 20 days before it is due. The bill amount will be automatically withdrawn from your chosen account on the due date. Adequate funds must be available in your account to cover the automatic payment. Insufficient funds will be subject to the same fee as a non-sufficient-funds check and the normal late-payment penalty will apply.
We will continue to read your meter and send you a statement on a bi-monthly basis. If you have any questions regarding the charges on your statement, contact the Water Billing Department at least ten (10) business days prior to the bill due date.
To begin automatic bill payment please complete the Authorization for Automatic Water Bill Payments and return it to the Water Billing Department, City of Westland, 36300 Warren Road, Westland, Michigan 48185. Note: It may take up to two billing cycles before automatic payments begin.
To cancel automatic bill payment for any reason you must notify the Water Billing Department in writing. Please complete the Cancellation of Automatic Bill Payment Agreement and return the completed form to the Water Billing Department, City of Westland, 36300 Warren Road, Westland, Michigan 48185. We must receive your written notice at least ten (10) business days before the due date to discontinue automatic withdrawals.
