Residential Connection Options
The District provides information and assists homeowners that are interested in connecting their existing residential home to the sewer system. Since sewer availability depends on many factors and is subject to the location of existing sewer lines in relation to the property, District staff is available to discuss sewer options for your parcel.
If you would like to discuss sewer availability for a property,
please contact Marie LaManna,
Assistant Engineering Technician, at (360) 993-8812. Or, you can submit
a request to check for sewer availability.
Some of the possible options used to bring sewer service to an area include:
Utility Local Improvement District (ULID)
The procedure used to extend sewer service to a group of properties whereby all property owners share in the cost. The process is a formal State defined procedure. View the ULID brochure (pdf, 56K).
Septic Elimination Program (SEP)
The SEP is a yearly program that the District developed to assist existing neighborhoods in making public sanitary sewer available. The District helps with engineering and design, construction management and financial incentives to help property owners connect to public sanitary sewer. View the SEP brochure (pdf, 84K).
Customer Generated Infrastructure (CGI)
This CGI is a program that the District offers to assist a homeowner with a documented failing on-site septic system to connect to sanitary sewer. The program assists homeowners through designing, financing and extending the sanitary sewer to the property line. View the CGI brochure, (pdf, 81K).
District Installed Infrastructure (DII)
DII is a type of project that the District initiates. Examples of such projects include sanitary sewer installation in conjunction with a County Road Project or working with a developer to extend santary sewer further then may be necessary for the development and servicing more properties. View the DII brochure, (pdf, 82K).
Property owners are responsible for the costs associated with bringing sewer to their property and connecting the home to the sewer system (which may include, but not limited to, plumbing costs and fees, decommissioning the septic tank and installing onsite sewer pipe). Financing options are available for portions of the costs to bring sewer to the property, connection fees, and side sewer construction costs.
