Water authority agrees to release information to Fayetteville

Posted: September 28, 2017 at 1:02 a.m.

The city soon will have access to Washington Water Authority customer information to bill 18 customers who use authority water and city sewer.

Water information sharing

The state legislature passed an amendment this past March to allow the sharing of water-use information in some cases. Information, including address and phone numbers, can now be shared in cases where there is shared billing between a public utility and city, for example. Information also can now be shared in cases that include tenants to receive notice of pending service termination, federal or state agencies doing research and current and former water system customers who want their own information.
