Water and On-Site Sanitary Services

Download, print and complete this Water and Wastewater Application, which contains information on what you’ll need to provide to become an applicant. Tribal members should complete the application as best as they can. Upon receipt of the application, the Planning Department will verify the information and work to obtain the Chairman’s signature. As such, please mail this application to Nooksack Indian Tribe, ATTN: Planning Department, PO Box 157, Deming, WA 98244.

After completion of the project, it becomes the responsibility of the homeowner to operate and maintain the system(s).
