Governor Inslee has issued Proclamation 20-23, pertaining to Utility Ratepayer Assistance and Preservation of Essential Services. Spokane County Water District #3 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. Financial relief may include waived late fees, deferred shut-offs, and incremental payment plans to help customers through this difficult time. This Proclamation does not relieve customers from the obligation to pay for utility services.
The novel coronavirus / COVID-19 virus has not been detected in tap water. Standard procedures for tap water filtration, disinfection, and treatment removes or inactivate the virus. In contrast, bottled water is not required to meet the same standards, it’s much more expensive, and both the manufacturing and resulting empty plastic bottles are harmful to our environment. We encourage everyone to use (and store) tap water-it’s the safest, least expensive, and most environmentally sound source of water.
District staff continues to monitor developments related to the COVID-19 outbreak and we urge you to check back for updates related to our closures.
Need to reach us? Call (509) 536-0121 between 8:00AM – 4:30PM Monday thru Thur and Fridays 8-12 (summer months only) for billing related questions and operations related matters. Emergency Calls please follow phone prompts and we will respond as soon as possible.
There is a potential regional chlorine shortage due to a power failure at a Washington State manufacturer who supplies chlorine to most of the West Coast. There are no immediate impacts as we continue to monitor for potential changes or needs. Our customers can continue to use water for drinking, cooking and bathing, but may consider limiting outdoor use to extend the current chlorine supply. Anything you can do to curtail water usage would be greatly appreciated and there is no need to stockpile water. The manufacturer is expected to be on-line within a week.
Voluntary Water Conservation:
Due to the extreme weather conditions it would be a great time for all of us to implement our water conservation techniques. We can all start with outdoor conservation (please click on this link).
