    Utilities Billing is currently experiencing intermittent outages with phone service. We are working to resolve this as quickly as possible.

    If you have trouble connecting with us by phone, please email utilities@bellevuewa.gov and a representative will get in touch with you as soon as possible and within 24 hours.

    We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience. 

    To help residents experiencing financial stress due to the coronavirus outbreak, Utilities began suspending all water shutoffs for nonpayment on March 11.  We will work with customers to set up payment plans or access available emergency financial assistance. During this time, we will not assess additional fees or charges for past-due payments. Please call 425-452-6973 or email utilities@bellevuewa.gov to set up payment plans.

    Customers facing job or income loss who do not qualify for Rate Relief programs may be eligible for the Emergency Assistance Program. This can cover up to four months of basic water, sewer and drainage service charges for customers who meet the program’s low-income qualifications for the past 30 days and do not receive other Utilities financial assistance. To learn more about the Emergency Assistance Program, please contact 425-452-5285 or email UtilityRelief@bellevuewa.gov.

    The City's Office of Economic Development has provided a list of resources available for local businesses and nonprofits. 

    The City of Bellevue bills every other month for drinking water, wastewater (sewer) and storm and surface water. If you have questions about your Utilities bill, please call 425-452-6973.

    For garbage/recycling/food and yard issues and billing, please contact Republic Services, the city's contractor at 425-452-4762 (residential) or 425-646-2492 (commercial).
