In this unprecedented time of COVID-19, we continue to keep your safety and health at the forefront – so all of us have clean water for drinking, washing our hands, and helping prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
During Washington County’s state of emergency, Clean Water Services will not assess late fees on sewer and surface water charges. Please contact your drinking water provider for more information on their service.
The Clean Water Services Fiscal Year 2020-21 budget includes proposed increases to the sanitary sewer and Surface Water Management rates to fund necessary investments to protect public health and the environment.

Everything we do at Clean Water Services aims to protect public health, while enhancing the natural environment of the Tualatin River Watershed. Combining science and nature, we work in partnership with others to safeguard the river's health and vitality, ensure the economic success of our region, and protect public health for more than 600,000 people in urban Washington County. Although Clean Water Services maintains a close working relationship with Washington County government, it is separately managed and financed.
