Help Keep An Eye Out For Unusual Water Leakage

Recently, we have noticed excessive water consumption as part of our daily monitoring of the distribution system. You may have seen Three Lakes Water Association staff walking along roads in the neighborhood, as we are in search of a water main leak. As our water system contains older asbestos cement main primarily installed in the 1960s, there are more leaks that are difficult to locate. If you see any suspicious or unusual surface water, please call the office at (360) 568-8022 or (425) 903-1601 after hours as it could be a leak. We need your help.

Late Fee, Water Service Shut Off and Share Revocation Policy

Three Lakes Water Association late fee, water service shutoff and share revocation Policies and Procedures will resume starting December 1, 2021

 

In accordance with proclamation 20-23, which was issued by Governor Jay Inslee, no late fees have been assessed or shutoffs performed since December 2019. As this proclamation was dismissed by the Governor on September 30th, 2021, the Board of Trustees has elected to reinstate the Association’s prior Policies and Procedures related to these matters.

 

This means that beginning on December 1, 2021, a 10% late fee will be assessed on any unpaid balance remaining on members’ residential water service accounts. Once billed, members are provided one month to pay their residential water bill prior to any late fees being assessed. This also means that any account with an outstanding balance of $350.00 or more will be mailed a shutoff notice and water shutoffs will proceed forward if no payment or arrangements are established prior to the scheduled shutoff date.

 

This action also includes the reinstatement of the Three Lakes Water Association’s share revocation Policies and Procedures which could affect a member’s ability to remain in good standing with the Association. Policy states that a residential water service account with an outstanding balance of $1,000.00 or more will initiate the share revocation process. This process could result in the loss of the member’s ability for potable water to be provided to their property by the Association.

 

If you have any questions or concerns about your account balance, please contact the association office at (360) 568-8022.

Association's Responses to Current Pandemic

Staff at Three Lakes Water Association is changing daily operations to reduce risk for themselves and the Association in response to the current COVID-19 pandemic situation. Here are some of the ways that staff is working to reduce risks for the membership, staff, and board of trustees:

All monthly board meetings will be held virtually via a webinar and phone conference. Staff will continue to set up virtual board meetings until public health officials announce in-person meetings are again safe. Please be sure to report any questions/comments/concerns to staff or write to the board so the board can address them at meetings.

The office site is currently closed to the public and will remain so until public health officials announce in-person interactions are again safe. Staff is still monitoring all virtual communication channels so contact the office by phone or email if you have business to conduct. Staff will respond to members needs in the field, but they will likely still communicate with members via telephone and maintain a distance of at least six feet from other individuals.

Staff members are currently conducting necessary operations from separate workstations. They have set up equipment required to individually complete most necessary tasks from their homes if needed. We are currently operating within the guidelines of the Emergency Response Plan.

The manager and staff are currently monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic situation and will continue to do so. The Association is following recommendations made by authorities having jurisdiction and will consider more as they are reported.

Our hope is to keep your Association safe while still serving the membership to the best of our abilities. We appreciate everyone’s efforts to minimize risk during this current situation.

Stay healthy and safe!
