The Stormwater fee pays for the required stormwater management program. Each property owner in the City pays their fair share to plan, construct, maintain, test for pollutants, and operate the city-wide stormwater system. The stormwater drainage system includes curbs/gutters, underground pipes, swales, drainage right-of-ways, canals, retention ponds, lakes, and waterways. Everyone who lives in the City of Centralia benefits when the stormwater system is well managed. The entire system is constructed and maintained for the benefit of all Centralia residents. You may not have a problem on your property or in your neighborhood, but the runoff from your property and your neighbors' property contributes to the City's overall stormwater system.

Contact Centralia City Light or call 360-330-7512 and request that someone be scheduled to come to your house to disconnect the power. A City Light representative will disconnect the power to your electrical meter base.Please note that any internal electrical work requiring this kind of disconnection will also require a Labor and Industries Permit. Do not disconnect power, remove the meter or meter seal yourself. If this is done by anyone other than a qualified City Light representative, the account owner will be billed for meter tampering. In addition, disconnecting power, removing a meter, and/or tampering with meter seals without proper training and protective equipment is dangerous and violates state law RCW 80.28.240 and CMC 13.04.165.
