Finance OIC AGM Atty. Mark Allen M. Paredes said this is to afford customers a way of settling their water bills in the comfort of their homes, online.
Atty. Paredes added ZCWD had expanded its payment centers option as it now caters to customers in 11 outlets in strategic locations in the city.
The online payment scheme through its Land Bank Link.Biz Portal Payment Facility becomes extra significant as customers were requesting for online payment services from the local water utility firm.
Atty. Paredes said this addresses that need, and the added payment centers and facility made available would help customers convenience in complying with their bills.
Payment for water bills are accepted in ZCWD Main Office at Pilar St., Putik Payment Center, Gov. Ramos Payment Center at Brgy. Sta. Maria, Ayala Satellite Office Payment Center (fronting DreamVille Supermarket) at Brgy. Ayala, DBP-ECOZONE, Al-Amanah Islamic Bank (Veterans Ave.), BDO Network Banks at Brgy. Sangali and Brgy. Ayala, and KCC Mall de Zamboanga Payment Center (3rd Floor).
At the same time, Paredes encouraged customers to settle their water bills early to avoid being penalized for late payments.
‘Now that we have expanded our payment facilities, we hope our customers respond positively by settling their bills on time, Paredes emphasized.
There are now over 64 thousand active water service connections being served by the District as more are lining up daily to apply for new water connections.
‘We at ZCWD are looking at ways and means of improving services offered to our customers, and this is one way of addressing a pressing need of easing payment of bills of our clients, especially during this ongoing COVID 19 pandemic in our desire to strictly adhere to medical protocols set by health authorities and the city government, Atty. Paredes added.
ZCWD partnership with Bayad Center is in the final stages, and this will further expand payment facilities available for ZCWD customers. (Ed D. Baños CREAS ZCWD)
