Individual Liability

Where 2 or more persons join in one application for utility service, each individual is jointly liable. This means each person is responsible for all the financial obligations associated with receiving service and Skamania PUD may elect to collect from any or all such persons. An implied contract for service may exist even if an application has not been completed when any adult has taken up residence at a location where Skamania PUD is providing service. Where a joint account exists, Skamania PUD will bill the person designated to receive the bill or, where there is no designation, bill any person at Skamania PUD’s discretion who is receiving service. Billing one person does not change the joint nature of each customer’s obligation
