Water Rate Increase in Washougal gets lowered.

In the last several months, there has been a lot of talk about significant water rate increases to occur in Washougal to start near the beginning of the year. The previous base rate of around $175 was supposed to move up to near $211, billed every two months. The City of Washougal, however, has managed keep that base rate down under $185 through two different measures. In the coming days, I will do a more in-depth report on how the city was able to lower rates, and what the potential outlook is for the coming years.


  1. Yippie! This is encouraging. Thank you citizens of Washougal Our collective voices do matter.
