Posted at 10:48 AM, Jan 25, 2019

CINCINNATI — Federal employees who are also Greater Cincinnati Water Works customers can postpone paying their water bills due to the partial government shutdown, the mayor's office said Friday in a news release.

Greater Cincinnati Water Works will allow government employees to enter into extended payment plans as the shutdown continues.

"While we can do little to stop the gridlock in Washington, we can offer some relief to local federal employees impacted by the government shutdown," said Mayor John Cranley in a written statement. "Those employees who are struggling at this time can contact Water Works to avoid falling behind on their water bill."

Federal workers will need to provide proof of employment, according to the mayor's office. Call 513-591-7700 or visit for more information about extended payment plans.
