Billing Information:
Bills are sent bi-monthly (one every other month). Single family residences will receive a bill for $196.12 every two months.

Senior citizens receive discounted rates if qualified for property tax exemption in Kitsap County. If you are qualified, contact us to review your current billing rate.

Rates are computed based on a flat rate for all non-commercial or industrial customers, rather than water usage, to help keep costs down. Water service is provided by several different purveyors or through single family wells or non-metered systems. The cost to obtain flow information for these customers is high, and would have to be passed to all ratepayers resulting in higher sewer bills.

Rates for commercial and industrial customers, as well as all restaurants, are computed on actual water use. Water consumption data is provided by the water system servicing these customers.
