3. Do I pay my bill to BexarMet or SAWS? Who do I write my check to?

BexarMet customers should continue to pay their bills and make their checks out to BexarMet through the end of July 2012. Once SAWS begins direct billing of these accounts in August 2012, all payments will be made directly to SAWS. All methods of payment (online, kiosks, remote locations, bank drafts) will still be available through July 26, 2012. SAWS customers will experience no changes to their payment process.
