Starting or stopping service   

Purchasing or selling a home   

If you are buying or selling a home, you will need to contact us to provide us with the seller’s name, property address, forwarding address, closing date, and buyer’s name. The owner is responsible for water and sewer charges. If you purchase a property and the final bill is not paid at closing, it becomes the new owner's responsibility to pay the outstanding charge. Check with your escrow company to make sure they are paying the closing bill.

Rental properties  
The property owner receives the bill for rental property accounts.  Please contact us if you would like to set up a property management company or third party payer.

Extended vacation or vacancy  

If you will be gone for an extended period of time, you may want to consider requesting a temporary stop service. There is a fee for turning off the service and for turning it back on. If you would like to temporarily stop service, contact us at 425-806-6881.

Water leaks and bill adjustments for leaks  

As the homeowner, you are responsible for locating and repairing a water leak. If you have a leak repaired, it is important to complete a Leak Adjustment Request Form.
