Rockwood Water People’s Utility District wants to ensure everyone has access to the water they need to stay healthy and take care of themselves and their families. With the COVID-19 emergency declaration, and until further notice, Rockwood Water will not disconnect water service for non-payment of water bills; however, it is important for customers to know they will continue to be responsible for water charges due now and accrued during this time. Customers should continue to pay their water bill. We understand our customers may be working through an affordability crisis during this time, so Rockwood Water is offering flexible payment arrangements and assistance to pay your water bill. Please be proactive! If you’re facing a financial hardship during this time, please call us at 503-665-4179 to work out a plan BEFORE your bill is due or late fees accrue.
