Pay Online


ATTENTION: Effective March 4th, 2019, the City of Helena Water Board will be launching an all-new online payment portal. All customers will be required to create a NEW online profile using the customer number and 4-digit PIN number printed on your bill. This new self-service portal will allow you to:

— View your bill amount.
— View payment history.
— Make payments to your account.
— Store a credit/debit card or bank account for faster payment processing.
— Sign up for email/text bill reminders.

Helena Utilities has partnered with NexBillPay to extend an additional payment option for customers interested in using their check, debit card or credit card to pay their bill. NexBillPay is a trusted third party automated payment service that allows you to pay your bill online.

  • Bill payments can be made at any time, 24/7/365.
  • You will need your customer number from your printed billing statement to complete your bill payment. You may request your account number by calling Helena Utilities.
  • NexBillPay charges a small service fee for each transaction.

Customers will need the following to pay their bill:

1. Helena Utilities account number (located on your billing statement).
