Consolidation Customers Update

The May 17 election results approved consolidating Oak Lodge Water District and Oak Lodge Sanitary District.

The elected boards of both Districts proposed the consolidation after three years of in-depth study. In the May Primary Election, voters overwhelmingly approved.

The consolidation takes effect July 1, 2016 – and the transition has already begun. The newly consolidated District will be called Oak Lodge Water Services.

For now, please continue to call, visit the website, or drop-in to the Oak Lodge Water District for water related matters and Oak Lodge Sanitary District for sewer and surface water management related matters. Your water and sewer bill will also remain separate until the new billing system is in place. We will keep you informed as the transition to Oak Lodge Water Services continues through 2016.
