When is my Craven County Water bill due?

Craven County Water services over 14,000 homes and businesses. Those numbers are broken down into 4 billing areas based on Townships. So there are 4 different billing dates, due dates and disconnection dates.

 Bills are due and payable upon creation.  A customer’s failure to receive a water bill shall not preclude such bill becoming delinquent or relieve the user from payment. Bills become delinquent twenty days after the BILLING DATE, there after which a 10% penalty will be applied. Your billing date may be different every month based on the calendar. 

Neuse River is billed between the 1st and the 5th of every month.

Township 6 is billed between the 5th and the 10th of every month.

North West Craven is billed between the 15st and the 20th of every month.

East Craven is billed between the 20th and the 25th of every month.


So the last day to pay your bill without incurring a penalty will be based on what day your bill was created. This date will be printed on your monthly bill. We do not call/robo-call customers to remind them of their due dates or their disconnection dates. 

HOWEVER!!!! If you know your billing area (Northwest Craven, East Craven, Neuse River or Township 6) you can click NOTIFY ME from our calendar. This feature will send you a text or email message 2 days before your area's bills are due or scheduled for disconnection! It cannot give any information on your account you would still have to contact the office for specifics. PLEASE NOTE: This will send you a message even if your bill has already been paid. If you do not know your billing area, please feel free to ask one of our Customer Service Clerks.
