Welcome to the Amador Water Agency
The Amador Water Agency serves approximately 10,000 customers in Amador County today and is the primary provider of drinking water. In addition to residents and businesses in unincorporated areas, the Agency sells water to the cities of Ione, Jackson, Plymouth, Sutter Creek, Amador City and several special districts.


AWA’s new financial software offers customers a new and improved, interactive On-Line billing and Payment service.   You have the option of making a onetime payment, setting up recurring payments and more! 

Please Note:   The software conversion has assigned you a new AWA  account number located in the right hand corner of your bill.   If you generate a payment on-line by any method to pay your bills, you will need to provide your bank with the new water and/or wastewater account number(s).
Click on the image above to go to the on-line payment center.

If you need assistance please call AWA Customer Service desk at 209-223-3018.
