In most cases, the City bills utility accounts on a monthly basis. Water
meters are read based on the same schedule. In addition to water billing, we
also bill for sanitary sewer and surface water management (SWM). If you
have specific questions about your utility bill please contact the Utility
Billing Department at 503-718-2460 during business hours.

Sewer Rates and Information
Sewer charges, that the City bills, are based on the rates set by
Clean Water Services.
Each customer is charged a monthly base rate. This base rate will be $24.37 per dwelling
unit, per month, effective July 1, 2012. Residential customers are generally charged
for one dwelling
unit, all other customer's dwelling unit
count is based on the number of fixture units being served. There is also a usage fee
of $1.62 per ccf. This is calculated by averaging the amount of fresh water used between
the months of November and April. This is the most fair method since during that time
the majority of water entering the house will leave via the sewer system.
In addition to processing wastewater, these fees are used to maintain the sewer distribution
system and the upkeep and construction of sewer treatment plants.
If you have questions about your sewer charges, please contact the
Utility Billing office, 503-718-2460.
Surface Water Management Rates and Information
SWM is also a charge established by Clean Water Services.
Charges are based on the
number of Equivalent Surface Units (2,640 square feet of impervious surface). Each
ESU is charged $5.75 per month (effective 7/1/12). Under normal circumstances, homes are
billed for one ESU each, all other properties are calculated based on the actual
amount of impervious surface. The City of Tigard has also assessed a $2.00 per month
surcharge for all SWM customers. This charge will help fund capital improvement projects
in the Tigard area.
The fees collected for SWM are used to maintain the storm runoff facilities including
ditches, street drains, and catch basins. These funds are also used to help clean up
the various streams and rivers in our area as well as protecting the environment
from polluted runoff.
If for some reason you believe that you should be exempt from the SWM charge, please
contact Greg Berry in Engineering at 503-718-2468 or by email at
firstname.lastname@example.org. All exemption requests must
be in writing and become effective the date they are verified.
If you have any questions regarding the SWM charges on your utility bill, please
contact the Utility Billing office, 503-718-2460.
