Submit Water Meter Reading

There are WSSC Water customers who have water meters inside their homes. If we cannot read your inside meter or do not have a usable read, we ask that you submit a meter reading to provide you with an accurate bill.
There are several ways to submit your meter reading:
  1. NEW – Submit Meter Readings Online!  This feature of the MyWSSCWater portal makes it easier for you. Log in and directly enter a meter read. This tool is always available.
  2. IVRS: You can submit your meter reading by phone 24/7 using our automated Interactive Voice Response System (IVRS). Dial 301-206-4001 (option 4) or toll free at 1-800-634-8400.
  3. Call Customer Service: Dial 301-206-4001 (option 9) or toll free at 1-800-634-8400 to speak to a customer service advisor.
  4. Email: Send an email to with a picture of the meter reading. Include the account number and service address in the subject line or body of the email.
  5. Meter Reading Request Card: If you received a meter reading request card, promptly return the yellow card to WSSC Water with the handwritten meter reading.

To use the IVRS, you will need your WSSC Water account number
