New Water or Sewer Connections
All new accounts for new water or sewer connections require an “Application for Water or Wastewater Service” to be completed and returned to the Public Services Accounting Office located in Room 200 of the Yakima County Courthouse. New water connections also require payment of a Water Connection Permit Charge that varies depending on the water system and the size of the meter. New wastewater connections will require payment of a Sewer Connection Permit Charge.
New connections may be installed by a licensed contractor or by Yakima County. The property owner is responsible for all costs associated with the installation, which are in addition to the Water or Sewer Connection Permit Charge.
Changing the Name at Existing Services
An “Application for Water or Wastewater Service” must be completed and returned to the Public Services Accounting Office located in Room 200 of the Yakima County Courthouse at 128 North 2nd Street whenever the name of the property owner changes at existing service connections. A $35.00 account initiation charge will be assessed when changing the name of the owner at existing connections.
