Utility Late Fees and Shut-offs

The Governor’s Proclamation prohibiting late fees and shut-offs due to the COVID-19 public health emergency expired September 30, 2021. As a result, Thurston County Utilities resumed these activities December 1, 2021. A reminder of our policies as required by ordinance:

Late fees - All accounts that are unpaid after the bill due date are assessed 0.67% interest (8% annually) and 10% penalty on the total balance owed, as allowed by RCW 36.94.150.

Shut-offs - Water service disconnection will result from failure to pay any past due amount by the specified date and time indicated on the mailed delinquent notice.

If you are unable to pay your past-due balance in full, contact us to request a payment plan. A payment plan will help reduce late fees and keep your water on.
