The permit allows two types of water withdrawal depending on customer desire and City approval. The customer is responsible for filling out a permit application and depositing a collateral fee for use of City equipment. The customer, known herein as a Permittee, is required to adhere to the regulations outlined in this document.

There are specific costs associated with the type of permit obtained. Type A Permits are based on the cost of water, a monthly base rate fee and a deposit fee for a hydrant wrench. The hydrant wrench is available for pick-up at the Maintenance and Operations department at 1305 C Street SW - Auburn, WA – 98001, after the permitting process.

Type B Permits are based on the cost of water, a monthly base rate fee, a deposit fee for a Hydrant Meter with RPBA Assembly and a weekly rental fee for the Hydrant Meter with RPBA Assembly. Hydrant Meter with RPBA Assemblies, due to their weight and size, must be picked up at Central Stores.

The cost of water is based on the commercial class rate as listed in ACC 13.06.360. Monthly base rate fees, and equipment collateral fees are based on the Auburn Fee Schedule. Other fees, service charges or damage charges, if applicable, are based on ACC 13.06.511. A listing of said rates, fees, service charges and damage fees is attached as Appendix A.

3Type A Permittee - Water from a Dedicated Hydrant

Type A Permittees can only withdraw water from Dedicated Hydrants. Dedicated Hydrants are painted red and an “Auburn Permit Water Meter Hydrant” sign is posted nearby. There are four (4) Dedicated Hydrants located on the valley floor and two (2) in the Lea Hill area. (AVAILABILITY MAY CHANGE) A City of Auburn map depicting the locations of Dedicated Hydrants is available from the Permit Center or Central Stores.

A Hydrant Meter Assembly, minus the wrench, is secured to each Dedicated Hydrant. Type A Permittees must record the “start” meter reading on a City of Auburn Water Use Report Form (attached) before hooking up their hose to the hydrant. After fill, the Type A Permittee must record the “finish” read and record it on the Water Use Report Form before unhooking their hose from the hydrant.

Type A Permittees are required to report their monthly water consumption to Finance personnel on the first Monday of every month or whenever they close their account; whichever comes first. The report must be made even if their consumption was zero (0) for the month. This report must be faxed, emailed, or hand-delivered to the Finance Department at the City Customer Service Center.





–  –  –

If a City recognized holiday falls on the reportage day, the report may take place on Tuesday, the next City work day. Finance shall prepare a bill after the monthly report is received. The bill will list account information, water consumption fee and the monthly base rate fee. The Finance Department must receive the total payment due within thirty (30) days of the monthly report date. If payment is not received within thirty (30) days, a reminder bill for the account will be mailed to the Permittee. Payment must be received within ten (10) days from the time the reminder notice was sent.

Permittees that wish to close their account should report their final consumption to the Finance Department and turn in their hydrant wrench to the Maintenance and Operations Department. The equipment collateral deposit is refunded in full after inspection determines that it is in acceptable condition and all fees and/or fines are paid in full. If the hydrant wrench is lost, or damaged in such a fashion as to render it inoperable, the entire deposit fee shall be forfeit. Finance shall mail out a bill listing account information, water consumption fee, monthly base rate fee and any equipment fee and/or applicable fines. The Finance Department must receive the total amount due within thirty (30) days of bill

Type B Permittee - Water from Non-Dedicated Hydrants The City recognizes that some project activities require on-site access to water.

In those cases, the City may allow Non-Dedicated Hydrants to be utilized if there is no effect to other customers or the City’s distribution system. The review process to determine impact may slightly delay the permit process until a decision is reached. If the City grants approval for use of a Non-Dedicated Hydrant, the Permittee is responsible for securing a Hydrant Meter with RPBA Assembly from Central Stores. The unit will only be allowed to be usued at the approved, designated location. Central Stores will record the Hydrant Meter with RPBA Assembly “start” Read when the Hydrant Meter Assembly is checked out and the “finish” read when it is returned.

Type B Permittees are required to report their monthly water consumption to Finance personnel on the first Monday of every month. The report must be made even if their consumption was zero (0) for the month. This report must be faxed, emailed, or hand-delivered to the Finance Department at the City Customer Service Center.
