Water

Water service in Washington County is provided at the municipal level in the different communities that make up the County. Because of this, your business won’t have to negotiate with large, privately-owned water providers but rather smaller, local-friendly municipal groups. For more information on monthly water rates, please view the Rates For Water Volume Charge Sheet.

ISO collects information on municipal fire-protection efforts in communities throughout the United States. In each of those communities, ISO analyzes the relevant data using our Fire Suppression Rating Schedule (FSRS). Fire stations are assigned a Public Protection Classification from rating 1 to 10. Class 1 represents exemplary public protection, and Class 10 indicates that the area’s fire-suppression program doesn’t meet ISO’s minimum criteria.
