COVID-19 Update

October 4, 2021

These are unprecedented times. COVID-19 has impacted all of our lives and we appreciate your efforts to help us combat this pandemic. At Water District 125, we understand that important role we play in your ability to stay safe and sanitize properly. The Board of Commissioners have previously approved a motion to suspend all past due charges and water shut offs for delinquent service through September 2021. On October 1, 2021 the Governor’s Ratepayer Assistance and Preservation of Essential moratorium expired and the District was directed to restart collection activities. This will not be an immediate change. The District is currently re-evaluating its collection policies. As a governmental agency, King County Water District 125 is not allowed to take any action that can be construed as gifting of public funds. This includes the waiving of charges assigned to an account for services rendered. If you have a past due balance it is best to contact the District to set up payment arrangements as soon as possible.

In the meantime, the District is closely monitoring for a directive from Governor Jay Inslee on the reopening of government buildings. While the office remains closed to face to face transaction, the District continues to otherwise operate as normal during this time including 24 hour emergency phone support. Payments can be made at the District website, by phone or dropped off in our secure lock box located in front of the administration building. No fees are charged for electronic payment processing either over the phone or online. The Board of Commissioners have also approved extensions to payment arrangement plans. If you have been adversely affected by COVID-19 and need help with payment arrangements, please contact the District office at (206)242-9547.We appreciate your patience during these uncertain times. Staff will continue to work to maintain the District's infrastructure to ensure you continue to receive clean, potable drinking water. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

If you have an unpaid balance please contact the District as soon as possible to set up payment arrangements.
