Water charges will be billed monthly and are delinquent 45 days after the billing date. A 10% penalty charge will be assessed on all accounts 60 days after the billing date.

Forty days after the billing date, the person responsible for an unpaid bill will be notified in writing of the delinquency, and should that account not be paid in full within the next 20 days after being sent the delinquency notice, a lien may be filed against the property (RCW 57.08.081).

After connection service fees or various water charges have been delinquent for 60 days, water to the property may be completely shut off and will remain off until said account’s accrued charges, penalties and interest are paid in full. The District may also bring a suit for foreclosure at this time.
