Water/Sewer Utility Information


After hours, Emergency water shutoff, call (509) 868-9818.

The Utility Department is part of the Finance Department and is responsible for creating and sending out water/sewer bills each month.  The bills are mailed at the end of the month and are due the 25th of each month (if the 25th falls on a weekend or holiday they are due the prior working day).  For customer convenience, payments can be left in the drop box at City Hall; this box is checked every morning for payments.  Accounts not paid by the 2nd Tuesday of the following month are subject to water shut-off, a $55.00 fee will be added to the account.

Sample Timeline:

  • December 31 bills are created and mailed
  • January 25  bills are due
  • January 26  Past due bills are assessed a late fee
  • 2nd Tuesday in February, water would be shut off on December 31 bills that have not been paid and $55.00 fee is assessed

If you have questions regarding your bill, please contact the Utility Clerk at 244-5578 x1, or, if not available, anyone answering should be able to help.

Complete the application and bring to City Hall. All new accounts require a deposit of $200 if connected to sewer or $120.00 if still on septic tank.
