New Bulk Water Station Available
The City of Veneta is happy to announce the opening of the new Cornerstone Drive Bulk Water Station. The station is located on Cornerstone Drive between Highway 126 and Jeans Road. The station will generally be open for use 24 hours a day-seven days a week.
This station will work on a pre-paid basis. All bulk water customers must go to the City of Veneta Administration Center located at 88184 8th Street to set up their account. Please note that any outstanding balance on your existing account must be paid prior to signing up for the new service. A one-time set up fee of $25 will be charged to set up the account and provide a bulk water card. Funds must be loaded onto the card prior to use.
Similar to a pre-paid debit card, the user will then "load" the card with funds at the Veneta Administrative Center. There is no restriction on the purchase amount; however, there will be a 2% surcharge based on the purchase amount, each time funds are placed or refilled on the card. Use of the prepaid funds will be charged at a flat rate, to be set by Resolution of the City Council, per 1,000 gallons of water purchased. The current rate is $11.00 per 1,000 gallons. Funds placed on the card will not expire.
Beginning September 1, 2014, bulk water will no longer be available from the Public Works Yard located on East Broadway Avenue. All bulk purchases will be made using the Cornerstone Drive Bulk Water Station.
The station features a user interface that allows the customer to use their card to purchase bulk water. The user must provide their own fill hose complete with a female cam-lock fitting sized to their needs. The station is equipped with both a two-inch and a three-inch connection. The City recommends the three-inch connection only for users that purchase 1,000 gallons or more at a time.
The water station was installed largely to make purchasing bulk water from the City more convenient. The station is easy to use and streamlines the accounting process. Please contact Veneta City Hall with any questions regarding the bulk water station at 541-935-2191.
