The City of Wenatchee prepares utility bills for water, sewer and storm drain services. The billing cycle depends on the type of customer and where the services are provided. Residential customers are billed every two months and commercial customers are billed monthly.
The minimum bi-monthly bill for a residential customer inside the City limits, receiving all services is as follows:
|Base Water fee ¾ inch meter (no consumption)
|Water consumption per 100 cubic feet
|Storm drain base fee
|Estimated Utility Tax
|Minimum bill without consumption
Residential payments are due 30 days after bill date and considered delinquent after 32 days. Commercial payments are due 28 days after bill date and considered delinquent after 32 days. Delinquent or disconnection notices are mailed within 35 days after bill date. Customers may be subject to disconnection and/or further collection procedures if the bill remains unpaid 45 days after bill date. If you are unable to pay prior to disconnection or collection, please contact: Utility Customer Service at (509) 888-3600.
As a landlord, you are ultimately responsible for the utility bill associated with your rental property. The utility bill will be mailed to you unless you complete a Utility Owner Authorization letter, which allows the City to bill your tenant directly. However, you are still responsible for the amount due in the event your tenant does not pay the bill. You will receive a disconnect notice to inform you if/when the bill is past due.
It is City policy not to disconnect water when the tenant moves out. We will disconnect the water only upon authorization from the landlord/property owner.
If you have any questions, please contact:
Utility Customer Service at (509) 888-3600 and select option 1.
