At the end of December 2022, the City of Clarkston (City) and the Asotin County Public Utility District (PUD) entered into an Agreement that provides for contract operation of the City Sewer System by the PUD. The Agreement was effective January 1, 2023 and the PUD will begin contract operation on April 1, 2023.
The Agreement gives the PUD full authority for operations, maintenance, improvements, setting of rates and billing of customers. Beginning with your April 2023 bill, your PUD bill will look different than your City bill because several rates and fees will be combined into the sewer service charge. For example, we break out the “State Utility Tax” on a separate line, but the total amount of all charges will be the same. Enclosed with this letter is an example of what your April PUD bill will look like.
We look forward to serving you with PUD operation of the City Sewer System. If you have any questions regarding PUD contract operation of the City Sewer System and your bill, please contact our customer service staff at 509-758-1010.
