Online Applications





Please submit your submeter reading using our Web Self Service feature provided by the Hampton Roads Sanitation District (HRSD) through the Hampton Roads Utility Billing Service (HRUBS)*.

*Customers receive a combined billing statement through the Hampton Roads Utility Billing Service (HRUBS), which typically have three charges for water, sewer and wastewater treatment.  Water and sewer service is provided by the James City Service Authority (JCSA) whereas wastewater treatment is provided by the Hampton Roads Sanitation District (HRSD).  Some JCSA accounts are water or sewer only.  If Newport News Waterworks (NNWW) is your water service provider in the Kingsmill and Grove areas of James City County, customers receive a separate water bill from NNWW.

Web Self Service gives you around-the-clock online access to your account history, payment information and the convenience of submitting your submeter reading directly to your account.  To view a list of online web self services, visit and click on Customer Service/Enter Reading of Customer Owned Meter.

If not already registered for HRUBS Web Self Service, simply click on the ‘To Register, click here’ link at the lower left of the page to create a User ID and Password using your account number and account name (exactly as it appears on your bill). Click on Reading for Customer Owned Meter, then simply enter the date the submeter was read and submeter reading.  The reading will automatically update to your account.**

Courtesy Reminder Notices

Ever forget to submit your submeter readings or just don’t know when?

  • The James City Service Authority (JCSA) provides courtesy reminder notices either electronically or by postcard.  Timely submission of your submeter reading ensures prompt credit to your billing statement.
  • In order to receive electronic reminder notices by e-mail, please set your spam filter(s) accordingly to accept e-mails from JCSA-SUBMETER-ALERT@ESUBSCRIBE.JAMESCITYCOUNTYVA.GOV.
  • To ensure the maximum deduction, submit your submeter readings by the 1st of the month of your billing cycle.  If Newport News Waterworks (NNWW) is your water service provider, your submeter readings are not due until the 22nd of May, and the 22nd of every other month thereafter, in order to coincide with the NNWW meter reading schedule.
  • Should a reading be received late the credit will be delayed until the next billing cycle.  Submeter deductions given for any one billing cycle cannot exceed the total consumption for that billing period.  No back credit will be given.
