Pay Your Bill Save Water! Learn more about water conservation



There are multiple ways you can pay your water and trash bill.



Pay Online

A page will open in a new window for you to login to your account; if you are new to online payments you'll either need to setup an account or make a one tiime payment. All you need to make a one time payment is your utility bill account number and the amount of your last payment.

Bank Draft

Customers are encouraged to pay by automatic bank draft (ABD). When using a draft, the customer's chosen bank account is electronically debited one day before payment is due each month. Customers still receive a bill for information purposes two weeks before the draft date. There is no additional charge to enroll in the Town's ABD program, and you may cancel at any time by notifying the Town in writing.

Postal Mail

Customers should use the Town remittance stub and envelope when paying by mail. Remittance envelopes are provided with the monthly bill and are pre-printed with the address for the Town of Fairview. If the remittance stub is not used and no reference information is provided on the check, there may be a delay in posting the payment to the proper account.

Drop Off/In Person

Of course, customers are welcome to stop by Town Hall and pay at the billing office. You may also use our drop box at any time. It is located on the south side of Town Hall curbside beside the handicap parking spots.

Unusually High Usage and Think You May Have a Leak

If you are concerned that you were billed for unusually high usage, you may have a leak on your property. Small leaks such as toilet flapper valves, and leaking fittings, can over time, result in unusually high consumption. If you have an irrigation system, damaged heads, and leaks can greatly contribute to a higher water bill.

To determine whether or not you do have a leak, locate your water meter (usually located near the street and near the property line). Turn off all the water in your house. Return to your water meter and observe the red dial in the center of the meter for several minutes. This is a pointer arm that rotates inside the meter. If all of the water on your property is turned off, this red pointer arm should remain stationary. If the arm rotates in a clockwise direction with all the water points shut off (dishwashers, washing machines, faucets, etc) , then you have a leak on your property and a plumber or leak detection company should be contacted.

If you do detect a leak and have it repaired by a licensed plumber, you may bring this receipt to Town Hall and apply for a leak adjustment. Each address may apply for a leak adjustment once per year.


How to read your meter

Almost all of our meters in Town are manufactured by “Master Meter”. They are radio read meters. The meter sends a radio signal to a laptop computer in our trucks. This allows us to get your meter reading without ever actually opening your meter box. This also eliminates most meter reading mistakes. We encourage you to read your meter whenever you choose to. This will allow you to see how much water you use on a daily basis.


To read your meter simply open the can and write down all the numbers in the white boxes. Most meters have 4 white boxes with black numbers, followed by two black boxes with white numbers, followed by a white zero surrounded in blue. These are displayed on the picture shown. Reading from Right to Left – the first black box with a white number represents 10s of gallons. A 7 in that box would represent 70 gallons.The second black box (reading from right to left) represents 100’s of gallons. A 3 in the second box would represent 300 gallons. The first White box with black numbers would represent 1000’s of gallons. To determine your usage take a reading today. Write down all the numbers displayed. Read the meter again at about the same time the next day. Subtract the second days reading from the first. This will tell you how many gallons you used. Remember to add a Zero at the end of your calculation since we do not measure units lower than 10 gallons. When you are billed we round our billing to the nearest 1,000 gallons.
