Palo Alto, CA July 23, 2013 - Desert Water Agency now offers customers the ability to pay their water bills using their smartphones with a mobile app called Check..

DWA has partnered with Check, a mobile bill payment company, to provide all DWA customers with a more convenient way to pay for water service. With Check, customers can pay their water bill anytime, anywhere and using a wide variety of payment methods, including credit cards. Bank payments are free, and credit card payments are subject to a 4 percent processing fee per transaction.

"We are very pleased to offer more convenience to our valued customers," said Board President Patricia Oygar. "Mobile apps are an increasingly popular method to complete tasks, and we are always looking for new ways to innovate and benefit from improved technology. Check is an easy, convenient way for customers to take care of their bills."

As an incentive, Check is offering $5 off a customer's first DWA water bill when they pay using Check. To get started, customers can visit DWA's website (www.DWA.org) or visit Google Play or the iTunes App Store to download the Check app for free.

Traditional payment options, such as paper checks and bank "auto pay," are still available, and customers will continue receiving monthly water bills by mail from DWA.
