To our valued customers of the Klickitat Water System

Klickitat PUD Water Operators are required to supply required water samplings for the various water systems it operates.  Washington Department of Health requires lead and copper samplings to be provided from the homes of residents within the water system.  We are required to retrieve from willing residents a water sample for lead and copper testing.  We do not enter the homes ~ we leave a bottle for the customer to fill the water bottle (following specific instructions) and then leave the water sample outside their door the next morning.

We are in need of important information concerning the plumbing within homes for the purpose of this testing even if customer does not want to provide a sample ~ we need to have a general idea as to what kind of plumbing the majority of our customers have.  Thus we KPUD employees will be calling customers in Klickitat to ask the following questions we are hoping you might answer if you are able.

  • What year was your home built?
  • Do you have lead or copper pipes or service line?
  • Does your home have a water softener?
  • Approximately how long ago were there plumbing updates done to your home?
  • Would you be willing to provide Klickitat PUD with a water sample when the water system is scheduled for the LCR Sampling?

If you are able to assist KPUD with this information, please contact the  Water Department at (509) 773-7623.
