One Month Into The Program, 1,715 EWSU Customers Approved For Bill Relief; Funds Are Still Available
Evansville, Ind. – The Bill Relief Program launched by Evansville Water and Sewer Utility (EWSU) on July 1 helps qualifying customers save on their water bill each month. To date, 1,715 customers have applied and are receiving program funding – a $10 monthly credit on their utility bill for one year. Relief funds are still available, and EWSU encourages eligible customers to fill out the simple online application found at ewsu.com/BillRelief.
EWSU customers who reside in City limits with an active water account and have a household income of $50,000 or less may qualify for assistance.
What the Bill Relief Program Provides
Customers who apply for the program and qualify will receive a $10 monthly credit to their account each month for one year – a total savings of $120. The credit offsets the 2022 water rate increase that went into effect July 1. After one year, customers may have the opportunity to reapply for the program for an additional 12 months or while funds last.
