New Utility Bill Format
The City of Edina began using new billing software in May 2023, resulting in a new look for your utility bill. Use the "Know Your Bill" document (PDF) to better understand the new bill layout.

- Why is my water usage increasing?
- How often am I billed?
Edina water customers are billed quarterly for amounts used and recorded by their water meters. Quarterly water bills also include charges for sanitary sewer services and storm drainage.
- Is water billed by the quantity used?
Yes, water is billed per 1,000 gallons used and charges are based on a tiered rate structure for all areas of the City except Morningside. Morningside is also billed per 1,000 gallons, but is charged a flat rate.
See the City of Edina utility rates.
- I just bought a house in Edina and have received an outstanding water bill. Do I have to pay this bill if I didn’t use the water?
A water bill is considered a lien against the property. Your real estate agent and/or title company should inform you of any outstanding water bills during the purchasing process, or you can contact Utility Billing for that information.
When buying or selling a home in Edina, residents are required fill out a Start or Stop Request form located under Utility Billing department. When selling your home, we request the date of closing, a forwarding address, and new owners name (if information is known). A final read is performed on the service address and a closing bill is mailed to the seller. Contact your real estate agent who can work with the previous owner’s agent to take care of the outstanding bill.
If these remedies do not work, the bill must be paid by current homeowner.
- Why did I receive a late fee / returned payment fee?
- If a utility bill is not paid in full by its due date, the City will apply a late payment penalty of 5% of the account balance. Late payment penalties will continue to be applied each quarterly billing until the entire balance is paid or certified to property taxes.
- The City will apply a $30 fee for any EFT/ACH returned payments (e.g., incorrect bank account number entry, insufficient funds, or closed account) where the bank cannot process the payment.
- Customers enrolled in automatic payments are responsible for keeping their payment information current.
