New ACCOUNT NUMBERS
Big Bear Lake Department
of Water (DWP)
customers will soon be able to pay their bills using a credit card at the DWP
office with no fees. This among other benefits is one reason the DWP will soon
make the transition to a new customer information system and online account
portal. Due to the conversion, account numbers will change and DWP
customers will need to update the number with their payment services after the
new system Goes Live the week of
August 12, 2019.
Goes Live, customers will also be
able to use the new portal to sign up for emailed copies of their bill as well
as for water-related emergency alerts such as outages. To receive notifications
on the software changes as well as updates on BBLDWP projects and programs via
email or text, subscribe to the eNotify list DWP Customer Updates at www.bbldwp.com/updates
customers pay and how are they being notified?
customers will receive a letter with their new account number around the middle
of August, or as soon as the new account numbers are available. In the
meantime, a notification was also added to current customer bills letting them
know about the changes. The DWP online account portal will be down between
August 6 and 12, so customers whose bills are due in early to mid-August
are encouraged to pay by August 6 to avoid any confusion with the account
number. These customers should also keep an eye on the mail for a notice with
additional details on payment options. Periodic updates are on the DWP website,
sent via email newsletter, and posted on social media.
What can customers do now?
who are paid-in- full and don’t have any payments due within 14 days are
encouraged to enroll in auto-pay using a bank draft. The great thing about this
option is that customers don’t have to worry about updating their account
number right away, plus they generally avoid missing payments.

or scanned copy to email@example.com. The original can also be
