Utility Billing

The City of Artesia provides water, sewer and refuse collection services for the residents of the city as well as some of the outlying county area.

Bill Calculations

Water bills are based on the actual usage as measured by your water meter. Sewer service is estimated using the water usage for the winter months. Refuse collection is either a shared dumpster or individual poly-cart depending on where you live.

Outside Users

Residents outside the city limits pay an outside users rate. The city is not able to service all areas outside the city limits.


Bills can be paid by Mail to P.O. Box 1310, Artesia NM 88211, In Person at 511 W Texas, or through our Automated Phone System by calling 575-746-2122. After hour payments may be placed in our Drop Box along with a check or Money Order. No Cash please.
