Where does City water come from?
The City of Troutdale, Oregon has six underground deep water wells which are located throughout the City.

How much is the utility bill per month?
The amount of the water bill varies depending upon water usage. The water meter is read monthly and the water charge is $2.86 for every one thousand gallons that has registered on the meter. The sewer charge is $33.04 per month and the storm charge is $4.10 per month for residential customers.

When is the utility bill due?
Utility bills are due twenty (20) days after the end of the billing month. For example, the May utility bill is due on June 20. A late fee of $5.00 is charged on accounts with unpaid charges forty-five (45) days or older.

What is the "storm charge?"
It is used to pay for operations, maintenance, repair and a portion of capital improvements to the City's storm water system. This could include something as routine as cleaning out catch basins that drain water from streets, to a major project such as installing drainage pipes or a pump station.

Why isn't a return envelope sent with the utility bill?
The City would need to hire a billing service to print and mail the monthly utility bills. This would be expensive and make it difficult to maintain accurate customer records. These extra costs would be reflected in higher water rates.
