Welcome to the Official Website of West Carteret Water Corporation
MAINTENANCE: Technicians will be working through 2023 to clean all meter boxes and personal shut off valve boxes. Personal shut off valves should be located within 12 inches of the meter box. If you do not have one, please install. (Visit our website at wcwc.biz to view our Hook Up Guide.)
HURRICANE SEASON: As we move further into Hurricane Season, make sure you stay up-to-date with the latest news by visiting our website at wcwc.biz and liking us on Facebook. You can also sign-up for alerts by calling the office.
DRAFT CUSTOMERS: Any additional payments on your account must be made at least 3 business days before the draft date to avoid having the original amount drafted, resulting in a credit balance on your account.
Bill Payment Options
The lobby is open to customers who need to open a new account. West Carteret Water Corporation still offers a wide variety of convenient payment options for our customers. Simply choose the option that best suits your needs. Thank you for your patience as we continue to do everything in our power to keep our staff and members safe.
Connection Fee Increase
Like everyone else, WCWC began experiencing an increase in material and labor costs in 2021. Since January 1, 2022 alone, service materials alone have increased 39% as of June – and continue to increase. The Board and Management have attempted to keep the water connection fee the same, but the time has come for us to increase that fee. The Board has reviewed and decided to increase the portion of the connection fee that is attributed to materials only by 39% and will evaluate the situation again in 6 months, making any appropriate changes. Please note that there is no increase to labor, although those costs have increased. The connection fee will increase to $2,870 effective August 1. If you have new construction that will need service in the next 45 days, you are encouraged to get in touch with us before that date.
Thank you for allowing us to serve you.
