Should I activate my membership now to guarantee I have a connection?

No, not unless you also obtain a permit and build a house.

You can activate a membership, install a meter and a spigot and use water, but the Wa state DOH would not count this as a connection to a habitable structure or an ERU. This would also throw out our ability to plan responsible expansion of the water system belonging to (and paid for by) us, the members.

Based on the highest growth rate considered reasonable we have the plans and the capital budget to expand the capacity of Olga Water faster than the demand, if we continue with the current pattern of active member participation in conservation.

More details of the number of tax parcels will be put on this page later.
