To help mitigate the spread of coronavirus in our community, BSMWC has closed our office to the public for the time being. However, our employees are still able to help answer any questions and concerns, and are reachable by phone or email during our adjusted office hours: Monday – Friday from 8 AM – 4:30 PM.
There are two drop boxes available for shareholders to leave check or money order payments, though we are not taking cash as a precautionary measure. Our online bill payment options and over-the-phone payment options are also still available during office hours. To make a payment over the phone, please call us at (844) 793-3989.
BSMWC understands that COVID-19 has caused many shareholders economic uncertainty. For this reason, we are temporarily suspending all late fees and shut offs until our offices reopen.
“We want to do everything we can to help our community during these uncertain times,” General Manager Steve Lenton said. “We also want to remind our shareholders that BSMWC’s water is safe and reliable to drink. You will not get coronavirus by drinking tap water, and using the water inside your home is an affordable and reliable way to stay self-isolated.”
For more information, please call (562) 866-9980.
