The City of Wichita says recovery efforts following the recent cyberattack are progressing well and that most public facing systems are back in service with some limited exceptions.

Water metering, billing and payment processing systems are coming back online, the city said in a release on Monday. 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 card, cash, check and money order at City Hall. You can also access your water account and pay online at link.wichita.gov. You can also mail your payment or pay over the phone by calling (316) 265-1300.

"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," the release said. 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.
