Information for Realtors

Effective March 4, 2019, all properties served by a private 1- or 2-party water supply or a Group B Water System are required to have a Water Status Report prepared by the Health District prior to sale. In the past, these reports have been optional, but are now required.

How do I know if I need a Water Status Report for conveyance of a property?

You can use our GIS Mapping System to find out if you need a Water Status Report. When you view your parcel, you will be shown if you are connected to a Group A or Group B public water system; or if you are served by a 1- or 2-party private water well. There will also be an indication if the Water Status Report is up to date, or if you need to apply for a new one. Questions? Call us at 360-728-2235 and ask to speak to the Drinking Water & Onsite Sewage Program inspector of the day.

Please allow seven business days for review and processing. Applications received after 3:30 p.m. will be dated as if received on the following business day.

Do you also need to complete a Septic System Conveyance Application? By applying for a Combined Property Conveyance and Water Status report Application you will recieve a fee reduction of one hour at the current hourly rate. (Only applicable for private 1- or 2-party sources).
