Up to one year of water consumption history can be retrieved electronically from the City of Atlanta WebConnect! Website. To retrieve older data, contact your customer representative and ask that they send consumption and billing data beginning on or before your preferred date to current date in spreadsheet form or submit an open records request. For more information see below.
To access your water consumption data, you will need to create an account. If you already have an account, click Sign In and proceed to step 4.
Step 1: To create an account, please gather the following items:
- Account Number
- Zip Code for the account service address
- Last 4 digits of the company Tax Identification Number or the last 4 digits of the account holder’s Social Security Number.
After gathering these items, click Create Account to get started.
Step 2 – Enter the account number from a water bill into the field and click Continue.
Step 3 – Enter the last four digits of the Tax ID Number (TIN) and account Zip Code. Complete the other required fields and click Continue.
Step 4 – Select Consumption History from the menu on the left to view the water and sewage consumption for each of your accounts.
Step 5 – Ensure that the account in the drop-down menu next to the Account Number field shows the account for which you wish to retrieve water consumption history. If not, click on the drop-down menu to select the desired account.
