PAY YOUR WATER BILL ONLINE!
We are now accepting credit cards, both online and in person.
We can also provide a link for you to view, print and pay your utility bill online! It is a safe, secure service. You can pay using a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express) as well as debit cards displaying the Visa or MasterCard logo, or with an electronic check.
There is a small service fee; this fee in most cases would be less than a late fee or other charges you could incur if your payment was delayed for any reason.
The service fee is assessed at $3.00 per $100.00 utility bill. For example, if your bill is in any amount from $1.00 - $99.00, it will charge you $3.00 to use the service. If it is $100.00 - $199.00, the charge would be $6.00, and continues going up from there.
You will need our Municipal Code. It is: BeviloaksTX713

The City of Bevil Oaks Water utilities department reports that on this past Tuesday, one of the three water wells stopped operating again. This has been an ongoing problem ever since the power went off to the whole neighborhood a short time back. The well being off line caused the chlorine content to increase slightly above normal. Entergy has been called out on each occasion to assess and try and fix the problem. In addition, Radley Electric has been at called out multiple times to try and trouble shoot the problem as well. At present, #3 well is pumping, however, we are awaiting some diagnostic testing from Entergy to see if possibly one or some of their transformers at well #3 are bad and need to be replaced.
The utility operator has been manually trying to adjust the chlorine content during the period of well #3 was inoperative. While at times the chlorine content has gotten slightly out of the high and low parameters as set forth by TCEQ, it has never been a health hazard. Chlorine content is required to be checked daily at the distribution point at the water plant as well as at least one of the 7 monitoring sites around the neighborhood. These records are required to be kept by the utility operator at all times.
If you believe you are experiencing problems with your drinking water, please report your issues to the City Hall during regular business hours or if after hours, to the Utility Operator at (409) 755-7377.
