Apply for Financial Assistance (Tigard Water Service Area Customers Only)
The city partners with St. Vincent de Paul to provide financial assistance to customers who demonstrate a financial need. Assistance with the water portion of utility bills is typically allowed up to three times per year. However, assistance has been expanded and is now available every month through the end of December 2020. Call 503-684-8280 or send an email to email@example.com to apply.
Request an Extension: Backflow Testing
Tigard Water Service Area customers can request an extension to September 1, 2020 by contacting Hung Nguyen, Cross Connection Specialist at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 503-718-2603. The city cannot waive backflow testing requirements, as they protect public health. For more information visit the Oregon Health Authority Drinking Water Division.
Alarm Permit Fees
The due date of fees associated with an alarm user’s initial or renewal alarm permit application is deferred through December 2020. The city waives all late fees accruing as of March 16, 2020 and continuing through December 31, 2020.
Suspending Water Shutoffs for Non-Payment
Utility shut-offs are suspended and the city will not charge late fees for missed payments continuing until the expiration of the emergency. Customers who are behind on payments will still owe the city for service, but they will not lose water service at this time. We encourage customers to utilize the Utility Billing Credit program(s) above to avoid accruing a large overdue balance.
|Delayed Rate Increases|
Utility Bill Relief
Adopted utility bill rate increases will be delayed until January 1, 2021. This will help all customers that receive a utility bill from Tigard. A typical home that is billed for water, sewer, and stormwater will save approximately $9/month.
