Clark Public Utilities considers transfer of three small water systems

March 12, 2010

The Clark Public Utility District board of commissioners will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, March 23, to consider transferring to the City of Vancouver operation and ownership of the following satellite water systems:

  • Cascade Estates Water System, serving the Cascade Estates subdivision area, located near SE 195th Avenue and SE 13th Street
  • Morning Meadows Water System, serving the Morning Meadows subdivision area, located near NE 194th Avenue and NE 13th Street
  • Regency Place Water System, serving the Regency Place subdivision area, located near 196th Avenue and NE 6th Street

The transfer is proposed because these systems are located within the city’s authorized water service area. If the transfer is approved, the City of Vancouver will assume operation and ownership of these facilities.

The hearing will be held beginning at 9 a.m. in the utility’s Electric Center, 1200 Fort Vancouver Way, Vancouver.
