No, once balances are certified, charges must be paid to the Clackamas County Tax Collector rather than directly to WES. If a payment for the past due amount is received by WES, the payment will be applied to the current balance on the account or remain as a credit for future services on the account, and the certified charges will still need to be paid to the Clackamas County Tax Collector.

Payment for monthly sewer and surface water bills is due on the 20th of the month following service. Payment due dates and past-due amounts are clearly stated on the bills you receive for WES’ services. WES also sends past-due notification letters periodically during the year and sends a pre-certification notice in April to accounts with unpaid charges that may be subject to certification. Please ensure that your contact information is up to date with us so that you receive all relevant information in a timely manner. Online account management options are also available; see more information.

The responsibility for certified delinquent charges typically transfers with the property, which means that a new owner may become responsible for any outstanding charges associated with the property after the sale. Title companies typically request account balances during a property sale and will settle these balances during closing so that there are no unpaid charges when the new property owner takes possession. If you are a new owner of a property with certified charges, please contact your title company to discuss a resolution.

Certification FAQ

Certification is a way for Clackamas Water Environment Services (WES) and other utility service providers that don’t have the ability to withhold services to collect unpaid sewer and surface water charges. Pursuant to Oregon Revised Statute (ORS) 454.225, WES submits the unpaid charges to the Clackamas County Tax Collector, who includes them in the next property tax assessment after July 15th.
