Expanded Payment Options

Chester Metropolitan District is expanding its customer payment options. In addition to automatic bank draft and online e-check payments, CMD will also offer online payments by debit/credit card and IVR (pay-by-phone) service.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • E-check service will remain largely unchanged. E-check processing will continue through the same service, T-Tech. However, due to rising costs, all e-check payments will be subject to a $2.50 processing fee. E-check payments made after 3:00 PM will be posted on the next business day.
  • Online Debit/Credit payments will be available through our new account management portal, hosted by Municipal Online Payments. Click Here to create an account and request Utility Billing access. A 3% processing fee will apply to all debit/credit payments.
  • The Municipal Online Payment portal will allow customers to view and pay bills in real time, as well as sign up for e-billing and important notifications such as outage notices and payment reminders. CMD will soon accept online service requests through this system, too.
  • Pay by Phone: Customers will be able to pay over the phone using debit and credit cards 24-hours-a-day. Simply call the toll-free number at 833-209-4044. You may also call our main line at (803) 385-5123 and dial 9 to access this service. A 3% processing fee will apply to all debit/credit payments.
  • Customers are also encouraged to sign up for automatic bank draft: a simple, no-fuss way to make sure your bill is paid on time, every month. There is no processing fee associated with automatic draft.

For more information, please read our FAQ or call our office at (803) 385-5123.

Annual Chlorine Burnout End

The Chester Metropolitan District is concluding its annual Chlorine Burnout. Filter Plant personnel returned the system to Chloramines on Friday, March 1, 2019. Customers should notice their water returning to normal within the next two to three weeks.

During this time, customers may continue to experience a stronger chlorine smell and/or taste in their tap water.  This is normal, and the water is still safe to drink.  If the water is allowed to stand in a glass for several minutes before drinking, the chlorine smell/taste will dissipate.

If you have questions or concerns about this project, please call the CMD Office at (803) 385-5123.

Solicitation Number: 500-17-003.01
Date of Issue: February 1, 2019
RFI Title: Building and Property Security Layout

Chester Metropolitan District (District) is soliciting information from potential bidders for a new security system including intrusion detection, access control, and video surveillance. The District is currently in the process of renovating their existing administrative and maintenance facility and will have the system installed during construction.

The District seeks information, including but not limited to layout and equipment, that will enable the District to efficiently secure their premises at 155 Wylie Street. The building includes the following areas: lobby, tellers, offices, conference room, and warehouse. All areas will need to be access controlled except the lobby which is open to the public. The site consists of: automated vehicle gates, open storage areas, and open sheds. The gates will require access control and the storage areas and sheds will require theft deterrence, which may include intrusion detection, video surveillance, or other means as determined by the Respondent. The proposed building layout and existing site plan is included as part of this package.

Annual Chlorine Burnout Notice

The Chester Metropolitan District will be turning off the Ammonia in the system beginning Thursday, February 1, 2019 and will run straight chlorine disinfection for approximately one month. This process helps to keep the system disinfected and reduce the chances of bacteriological growth in water lines with lower flows.

CMD personnel will begin flushing lines the week of February 4, 2019.  Customers may see fire hydrants standing open – this is part of the process, and will be monitored by employees.

During this time, customers may also experience a stronger chlorine smell and/or taste in their tap water.  This is normal, and the water is still safe to drink.  If the water is allowed to stand in a glass for several minutes before drinking, the chlorine smell/taste will dissipate.

If you have questions or concerns about this project, please call the CMD Office at (803) 385-5123.
