A water billing system is an automated system that makes the complex task of billing easy, fast and accurate. This paper presents the development of an Automated Water Billing System for the local government unit of Hinunangan in the province of Southern Leyte, Philippines. The system constitutes two applications - Desktop and Mobile Reader. The System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) framework was adopted in the development process utilizing the Waterfall Model. Survey and interviews were also done as a supplementary technique of the fact-finding. The purposive sampling method was employed in the selection of respondents, and a researcher-made questionnaire was used in the systems evaluation. Weighted mean was used as a statistical treatment. Based on the results of the study, the developed system contributes a greater advantage in providing and delivering better operation, reporting, and services to the clientele.
