ACH Debit Payments

Just a reminder that you can now choose to pay your monthly water bill automatically by way of an ACH Debit transfer. This transaction is initiated by Mid-America Bank at our request each month, and with your permission, funds equal to the amount of your water bill are drawn from your account at your bank (electronically) and deposited in our account at Mid-America Bank. Click here to download a form that you can complete, sign and return to us to begin this service. A voided check or a deposit slip must also be attached to the form. You will not incur any transaction fees in using the ACH Debit service.

Once the service has been initiated, Rural Water District No. 4 will calculate your water bill and initiate a debit to your account on the first day of each month by sending a file to Mid-America Bank. You must have funds available in the account at that time each month, as a debit that fails to clear your account will result in a $25.00 fee being charged, similar to the fee for NSF checks. If applicable, late charges will be assessed as well.

This is becoming a popular way to avoid those unpleasant late payment fees! A neighboring water district reports that some 30% of its customers now pay with ACH Debit.
