Billing Information

Governor Inslee has issued Proclamation 20-23, pertaining to Utility Ratepayer Assistance and Preservation of Essential Services. City of Bothell is committed to keeping our customers connected to essential services during the COVID-19 pandemic emergency. If you are experiencing hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, you may be eligible for support, including long-term payment arrangements. If you are having difficulties making your payment, please call (425) 806-6881 and press 2 to discuss a payment arrangement planThis Proclamation does not relieve customers from the obligation to pay for utility services. 

We also offer discounted rates for qualifying low-income residents who are at least 62 years old.  

In response to COVID-19, all city buildings are closed to the general public and we are not accepting in-person bill payments at this time. 

Billing Frequency

City of Bothell issues utility bills every two months. You can pay by mail, online, or by phone. Find more information about utility rates.

Billing Calculation / Utility Rates

Effective January 1, 2020:  In 2019 Bothell City Council adopted three ordinances to approve a 3% increase on water, sewer, and stormwater rates to fund reliable, safe, and efficient utility operations and maintenance and to provide revenue for required utility improvements.

Water and sewer rate increases appear on every-other-month utility bills in 2020, and stormwater rate increases show up on semi-annual county property tax billings.

Water Usage
