New Water Connections - New Construction

Sierra's process of receiving Island County authorization for increasing water connections and selecting property owners who have expressed interest in building new homes, is known as the Water Connection Approval (WCA) process.  This process is repeated every other year. 

A Water Availability Verification (WAV) is required by the Island County Health Department and the Island County Planning Department as part of the building permit process.  Typically, Sierra may allocate up to five (5) new water connections every other year (referred to as a build year).  Water connections are granted to interested property owners according to a ranking of length of ownership of their lots, and are contingent upon Island County approval.
