Sewer

Sewer volume is based on water consumption. The city establishes an individual customer's sewer use for the upcoming year by averaging the user's water consumption for the most recent winter months of December through March. The newly established sewer volume rate takes effect in April of each year. The city uses the winter months' average as the most equitable measure because much of the water used in warmer months is for watering lawns and gardens and does not enter the sewer system.

Stormwater Drainage

Since stormwater has the potential to negatively impact our environment, the WA State Department of Ecology carefully regulates the systems that collect and manage it. The city's Stormwater Drainage System consists of the infrastructure that collects and distributes stormwater as well as the systems and methods used to prevent potential stormwater pollutants from entering our local streams.
