We have had an unusually dry Summer and are facing a potential water shortage this Fall. We are asking customers to voluntarily reduce their water use. This will help stretch the region's water supply for both people and fish until we get enough Fall rain to improve our supply.

King County Water District No. 90 (The District) has selected a Contractor, and work on this project is scheduled to begin soon. The District would like to extend an invitation to attend a public meeting to answer any questions you may have regarding this project.
Meetings will be held at the District Office. Meeting times and dates are as follows:
Tuesday, May 16, 2023, from 3 pm to 4 pm
Wednesday, May 17, 2023, from 7 pm to 8 pm
This project will impact 215 homes in the Renton Suburban Tracts, Divisions 6 & 8. For that reason, this meeting could be larger than our conference room will allow and will be held in person only. Please come dressed for the weather, as this meeting will be held in our Maintenance Bay to allow for a large size gathering. Representatives from the District, Engineers, and RW Scott Company (Contractor) will be in attendance to answer any questions you might have.
The District wants to congratulate our Operations Manager, Josh Drummond on his efforts to raise the public works projects limit from $50,000 to $300,000 per project for the State of Washington! He was instrumental in getting HB 1621 signed into law by Governor Inslee. This new law will allow Districts to perform public works projects in-house using District personnel that cost under $300,000 to complete. This will save time and money in the long run for the District. Great work, Josh!

The EPA is requiring all Water Districts to conduct a Lead & Copper Service Line Inventory. Lead service lines from the meter to the home were used before 1969. We do not have records of what your service line is made of. If your home was built during or before 1968, please take a minute and fill out our online form. We appreciate your help in meeting the EPA's requirement.FILL OUT FORM
