LEXINGTON, Va. (WDBJ7) There’s a new way to check your water bill in Lexington.

The new web-based SENSUS Customer Portal gives nearly real-time access to all sorts of information on water usage. Users can monitor their usage over time, pay bills, and even enable the system to send alerts about water usage while on vacation.

"A 24-7 web-based portal, explains Tom Wagner of Lexington Public Works. "Software that allows a citizen to better manage their water usage over periods of time they can look at it: weekly, monthly, yearly."

Previously, you had to wait for the bi-monthly bill to see what your water consumption was like.
