Water ebilling

Water ebilling offers a convenient, timely, effective, and environmentally friendly way to receive your bills. These ebills will look the same as your paper copy and your billing cycle will remain the same.

Sign up for ebilling

Please send us a completed ebilling sign-up form to sign up. You will no longer receive a paper copy of your bill.

Payment options

You can pay your water bill online or with telephone banking. You can set Marathon Water as a payee. Be sure to pick Water and not taxes to ensure that you pay the correct account.

We offer a few ways that you can pay your water bill:

In person

You can pay in person at Town Hall, 4 Helmo Dr, during normal business hours. We accept payment by cheque, cash, debit, or VISA/Mastercard.

Drop box

You can drop off cheques in the afterhours drop box at the front door of Town Hall, 4 Helmo Dr. Please bring the detachable portion of your bill.

Please place your cheque in a sealed envelope with 'water billing' written on it. Do not place cash in the drop box.

Bank or trust company

You can pay at your bank or trust company at the teller or through an ATM. You are responsible to pay any of their service charges. Please take the entire bill with you.


You may mail your cheque to:

Town of Marathon
PO Bag “TM”
Marathon, ON P0T 2E0

Please include the detachable portion of the bill.

To avoid late penalties, we must receive your payment by the due date. If you are paying electronically or with a cheque in the mail, please allow enough time for the funds to reach the Town to avoid penalty. There is a late payment charge of 2% based on the amount outstanding that we add to the water utility account the following week after the due date, and on the first week of each subsequent month thereafter.
