Please have Assessment payments made to avoid Late Fees
July 1st Shut Off for non-payment begins
October 15th: Irrigation Water goes off


Dirty Water – We source our irrigation water from the Naches River which has been running excessively muddy for most of our Spring this year.  This chocolate water is caused from snow melt and rains in the mountains which is beyond our control.  Filter screens are not made small enough to keep the fine silt from getting through.  This silt can build up in our pipes and cause clogging.  If your service spigot stops producing water or slows significantly, please call Maintenance to let them know as there may be a clog in your line that will need to be blown out. We expect to be dealing with this challenge all season.

We hope everyone has a wonderful summer with green lawns and bountiful gardens!  If any irrigation water issue do arise, don’t wait, please call us right away!

2023 Annual Irrigation Assessment Invoices were all mailed February 1, 2023 – Shut Off’s for non-payment begin in July..  Please let us know if you have not received yours.  For your convenience, there are multiple methods to make payment.  Click on the PAY BILL button at the top of the Home Page to see all your options.  If you have not paid our invoice by now, a $10 late fee is being added to all open invoices and interest has been added.    If you need to make payment arrangements, we are happy to work with you, but we need to hear from you.



When the well’s dry, we know the worth of water.
