[ARCHIVED] Implementation of King County Righ-of-Way Rental Charges (Issue 196)


As the litigation brought by

local utilities challenging the

King County right-of-way

rental charge winds down,

the District is faced with

negotiating with King County

the rental charge that was

upheld by the Washington

Supreme Court in its 2019

ruling in the case. This

negotiation will result in a

charge to property owners in

unincorporated King County

to cover the compensation

that must be paid to King

County for the District’s

location of water and sewer

mains in County right of way.

The Board will be reviewing

the charge during its

consideration of rates

and charges for years 2022

and beyond. It is anticipated

that a rental charge will be

added to the bills of residents

within unincorporated King

County, possibly beginning

in January 2022.
