Important Updates

  • In September, we completed review of our developer extension agreement and standard easement form, but are still working on the review of our standard details and specifications. We anticipate these last two items to take a couple months. If you are planning to develop your property and need more details about this process and its affect upon you, please contact our Business Manager, Douglas Wittinger at 360.820.4314.
  • We also have new standards for the water service line. Please contact us if you are installing or replacing the service line between the water meter and house.
