Returned Payment Fee

In the event your check or electronic debit is returned unpaid, an additional service charge of $50.00 will be added to your amount due for the processing of the returned item as allowed by the Code of Virginia and the Code of Henrico County.

Automatic Bank Account Withdrawal

The Henrico Department of Public Utilities bills customers for water and sewer services bi-monthly. You may continue to pay your utility bill as you normally do, or you may choose to use our new DIRECT UTILITY PAYMENT PROGRAM. This service will automatically deduct utility payments from your bank account, just like a mortgage or car payment, thus saving you the need to send utility payments by mail or making them in person.
