Water Billing
Paying Your Water Bill
The City of Highland Park provides water service to its residents and businesses, managing more than 10,000 water accounts. The Public Works Department reads the water meters and enters the readings into a hand-held system that imports the readings into the finance billing system. Water bills are generated on a quarterly basis from actual readings. However, during winter months, bills may be based upon estimated readings. Estimates are calculated based on a customer’s prior history.

There are several ways a resident can pay their water bill. 
  • Automatic payment – ACH plan 
    • Have your payments withdrawn automatically from your bank account
  • Online payment 
    • Pay utility bills

    • City of Highland Park
      City Hall - Finance Department
      1707 St. Johns Ave.
      Highland Park, IL 60035
  • Payments may also be placed in the drop box in the lot across from City Hall.  Payments placed in the drop box are posted the following business day.
