Update regarding the City of Wichita’s cyber security incident

The City of Wichita reports that recovery efforts following the recent cyber security incident are progressing well. Most public facing systems are now back in service with some limited exceptions.

Water metering, billing and payment processing systems are coming back online. Customers should expect to begin receiving updated statements this week. Auto-payments are functioning as normal, and customers should now have access to their utility accounts online. Bills may be paid via credit card, cash, check and money order by coming to City Hall, accessing your water account online at https://link.wichita.gov, by calling (316) 265-1300 or mailing payment.

Please be aware, due to the cyber incident, which impaired processing bills and payments, some June bills will be for more than 60 days of service. If necessary, please speak with a representative by calling (316) 265-1300 for a payment arrangement and to work out a plan to get your account caught up on payment activity. Please see frequently asked questions about water bill payments at www.wichita.gov/alert if you experience any glitches when accessing your account.
