August 19, 2022Celebrating 70 Years of Service!

The District is celebrating 70 years of service to our customers!  The staff, District Engineers, District Attorney and Commissioner Materi enjoyed a tour of the Cedar River Watershed, lunch and fun filled water related team building activities on August 18th in recognition of this milestone.  Everyone appreciated the opportunity to learn more about where our water comes from and how it is delivered to the consumer.  We are so lucky to have such valuable resources here in the Pacific Northwest and it is important to conserve water whenever possible.  If you are interested in learning more about the Cedar River Watershed, you can visit:  

We began our day at the Education Center where we learned about the history of the watershed and the journey our water takes from start to finish.

Next, we traveled to view Cedar Falls.  The group was able to take a path down to a platform where we were able to enjoy spectacular views of the Falls.

We then traveled to the dam and our guide shared information about the different wildlife found in the Watershed.


Our team returned to the office to take part in a company lunch and team building ativities with plenty of laughter and fun competition!


 Pass the ball with the Plunger...harder than it looks!

February 22, 2023Freezing Temperatures Can Mean Trouble...


Please be aware that as temperatures are falling the risk of frozen pipes and meters increases.
The first sign your pipes may be freezing is reduced water flow at the faucets. Here's some steps you can take to prevent this from happening:
** Turn up the heat.
** Insulate the pipes in the crawl space and attic.
** Seal air leaks into your home that allow cold air in. Most commonly these are at door jambs.
** Open vanity or cabinet doors to let warm air reach pipes under kitchen and bathroom sinks
** If you have exposed pipes in pantries or closets, leave doors open
** If you have not already done so, disconnect garden hoses from outdoor faucets.
** Keep your garage door closed.
** Let a tiny trickle flow from faucets to prevent pressure from building up inside pipes and to create constant flow of water which helps to prevent freezing.

Stay warm and safe!
