Wet wipes, Clorox wipes, rags, and other non-dispersible items (those things that do not break down naturally) are troublemakers for plumbing and sewer lines. With the increased use of wipes during the pandemic, there is a rise in the chances for sewer spills and overflows attributed to these items being flushed and entering the MWA sewer system. Non-dispersible items not only clog sewer lines, but they can damage equipment and processes at the MWA Water Reclamation Facilities. Please do not flush these non-dispersible items down the toilet. Remember, the Toilet is not a Trashcan! For more information, including grease education about not pouring fats, oils, or grease down the sink, check out our "Learn More" link below. Learn More »

One of our most popular and convenient payment methods is our Quick Pay Service. There are currently 18 Quick Pay Authorized Payment Locations (APL’s) for MWA customers to access for making payments on their monthly bill. There are eight Kroger stores and eight Walmart locations, spread throughout Macon-Bibb, Houston, and Monroe Counties, as well as Macon Check Cashing and Discount Cashier of Macon. To make a payment on your MWA bill at any of these locations, all you need is (1) your MWA Account Number; (2) the MWA office zip code of 31202-0108; and (3), the $1.50 service if paying at Kroger or Walmart, or $2.50 if paying at Macon Check Cashing or Discount Check Cashier of Macon. Please note that these APL's are only designed to accept bill payments; other transactions and interactions can be made at our Second Street Headquarters or on this website. For more information and the complete list of APL’s, check out the “Learn More” link below. Learn More »

You can help us prevent stormwater pollution caused by stormwater runoff, which will in turn protect our drinking water resources. Some helpful practices to prevent stormwater pollution include: • Use lawn and plant fertilizers sparingly. • Use less toxic pesticides, follow the labels, and learn preventative pest solutions. • Sweep/clean driveways, sidewalks, and gutters. • Don’t blow leaves or dump anything down storm drains or in streams. • Vegetate bare spots in your yard to reduce the flow of runoff. • Compost your yard waste. • Direct downspouts away from paved surfaces, and consider using a rain barrel or garden to capture runoff. • Take your car to the car wash instead of washing it in the driveway. • Check your car for leaks and recycle your motor oil. • Pick up after your pet. • If you have a septic tank/system, pump and inspect it regularly.

Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG), when poured down your sink, can cause costly sewer backups in your home, as well as spills and overflows within our sewer system. In fact, over half of MWA sewer spills and overflows are caused by FOG. Please help us in the fight against FOG by not putting these items down your kitchen sink. We have free, reusable grease can covers for you at our headquarters to help put grease in its place. Also, please do not flush non-dispersible items, such as Clorox wipes, rags, etc. These non-dispersible items also can cause sewer spills and overflows. You can refer to the "Learn More" link below for some household tips on how to properly dispose of FOG, while remembering that the toilet is not a trash can. Thank you for your help to prevent sewer spills and overflows! Learn More »
