Flowing deep below the ground runs an aquifer that stems from Glacier Peak. This is where the Town of Darrington gets the clean, fresh water that we are known for.  Our water is exceptional in taste and clarity and is not treated with chemicals. The Darrington Utilities Department must follow strict rules and standards that are regulated by the Department of Health to keep your water safe and clean. We test our wells on a monthly basis to ensure that the water you are receiving meets or exceeds those rules and standards. The quality of water that comes from the wells that hold our water is of utmost importance to the Town of Darrington Utilities staff and we strive to make certain our community has safe and clean water now, and for years to come.

The Town of Darrington Utilities Department currently serves approximately 600 accounts. We provide water and garbage service within town limits and bills bi-monthly for those services.

The balance is due 20 days after the issue date. Accounts are considered delinquent if the payment is not received by the Due Date shown on the bill. In the event that an account should become delinquent, a Delinquent/Termination Notice will be issued.  A penalty of $10.00 will be assessed against all delinquencies.

Please consider this the final notice that your utility services will be discontinued and disconnected if full payment plus any late charges are not received by the due date on the Delinquent/Termination Notice. In order to reinstate service due to failure to pay, the total balance plus an additional $100 Termination Fee will be required.

Request for Services / Service Cancellation Requests

All new service accounts are required to fill out a Town of Darrington Utility Service Application. A $25.00 registration fee is due at that time.

Please contact Town Hall when you no longer require services or to provide closing or move-out information. Any previous balance on the property must be paid in full before the next customer requests service.

In order to shut-off or restore existing utility services at your home or property please fill out the Voluntary Water Shut-off/Restoration Waiver and Indemnification Agreement and submit to the Utilities Manager for processing. Once the form has been received, the Utilities Manager will contact you to make arrangements with the Utilities Supervisor.
