COVID-19 Utility Customer Support Program


Our Public Works Department owns and operates a Water and Wastewater treatment plant. Drinking water is collected from the Elochoman Valley River and processed for distribution to our utility customers located in-and-out of Town limits.

Our Wastewater treatment plant collects sewerage, which is then treated and processed into the Columbia River.

Our Public Works staff perform general maintenance, installations, turn-on/off service, hook-ups, locates, and handle all operations of our utility system. Town Hall staff are responsible for the billing and collection of payments, Public Works staff do not collect payments or report charges and fees to customers.

For water/sewer emergencies, please select extension 9 when calling our office; for general inquires unrelated to fees select extension 4.
