Info on Utility Rate Increase
Utility rates will increase on July 1, 2021 to protect public health and maintain City infrastructure. For a typical household, bills will increase $9 per month. We understand this is a difficult time to raise rates. We continue to pursue actions to keep rates as low as possible and to ensure help is available to those who need it.

- Your water remains safe to drink. The COVID-19 virus has not been detected in drinking-water supplies. Lake Oswego and Tigard invested in an advanced state-of-the-art water treatment plant that uses chlorination and ozone as a combined disinfectant. Ozone is a strong oxidizer that is highly effective against bacteria and viruses, especially in combination with chlorine. Learn more about drinking water and COVID-19.
- Parks are open. Observe CDC’s recommended social distancing of 6’ from other persons at all times. Use of outdoor equipment is at your own risk.
- In support of our business community, permits and inspections are being completed. Please visit www.tigard-or.gov/permits for more information.
We need your help
- Please observe CDC’s minimum recommended social distancing of 6 feet from city staff at all times. When our crews are safe, everyone wins!
- Please do not flush anything besides toilet paper. Even if you run low on toilet paper, avoid flushing wipes (even those marketed as "flushable"), paper towels or other products. They can clog pipes and cause a real pain in the drain.
