Rural Water District No. 3, Nemaha County is excited to now provide the convenience of accepting your monthly payments on-line through our website. In addition to the on-line bill pay option you can also pay your bill using a credit/debit card over the counter at the RWD No. 3 office located at 905 US Highway 36 (just west of Seneca at the jct of US 36 and K178 highways).
To pay your monthly bill on-line, use this website and click on the "PAY YOUR BILL ONLINE" link near the top of the home page. The link will transfer you to a third party secured site to enter your account and reading information. REMEMBER THAT YOU MUST ENTER A CORRECT ACCOUNT NUMBER AND METER READING for us to properly process your payment. After entering your account and reading information, you then either select payment by electronic check or by credit/debit card.
A convenience fee of $1.50 per electronic check will be added by the payment service provider.
A convenience fee of 2.5% of the amount paid to RWD No. 3 will be added to your credit/debit card account by the payment service provider.
Note that these convenience fees are NOT initiated nor collected by RWD No. 3. It is a charge by the payment service company for providing this service.
If you are paying your bill after the 15th, you will need to add the late fee and the water fee for the Unit Price. The page will ask you for the amount of the late fee and water fee, but it is not talled up for the grand total amount due.
For a typical monthly bill of $40.25 (5,000 gallons of use) the charge for using a credit/debit card will add $1.01 to your cost vs. $1.50 charge for using the electronic check option. However, a larger use account, for example 50,000 gallons per month, the RWD No. 3 billing is $134.50. The charge for using a credit/debit card would be $3.36, whereas the charge for using an electronic check is still only $1.50.
Let us know what you like and dislike about the online payment option and process. We will work to improve the process and make it as convenient as possible.
