It is located on US-97, the Cascade Loop Scenic Highway, and the Okanogan Trails Scenic Byway. Pateros was officially incorporated on May 1, 1913. Pateros has a current population of 565. We are at the center of all your recreation activities.

12.18.2018 Water System Update: The city is planning to switch the water system over, from the old reservoirs and wells to the new system on Tuesday, 12/18/2018. Residents may experience sediment and manganese in the lines during this process. Please read the information below on the best ways to deal with sediment or manganese in your water. Contact City Hall (509) 923-2571 if you have a water emergency or need additional assistance during this process. 

The technicians plan to meet in the morning around 10AM, and the process is expected to take several hours. There are a lot of unknowns, as we found out last week, so we appreciate your patience and understanding as we turn on the new system.

PREPARE FOR A NEW WATER SYSTEM

WHEN: Planning for morning of December 18th, but may happen throughout the week of December 17-21.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

  • Residents should have water pressure through the transition. You may see little or no immediate change in service.  

  • Water pressures will increase by about 20 psi. Unlikely, but water leaks may develop due to the increase pressure.

  • Manganese and sediment may break loose in the lines causing dark water, clogged fixtures, and clogged meters.

WHAT TO DO:

  • If you have a water emergency please call City Hall 923-2571. If you are out of water, or need help please call City Hall 923-2571. The Public Works staff will be available, and prioritizing requests.

  • If you have black or dark water, turn all water off and run cold water in your tub until it runs clean. Then remove screens on sinks and run till clean. 

HOW TO KEEP INFORMED:

  • Check in here at WWW.PATEROS.COM

  • City plans to notify residents in advance of the transition by the Okanogan County Emergency alert systems.

 Please text and OPT-IN so we can alert you.

Tips when experiencing manganese or sediments in your water:

  • First, run cold water in your tub until the water runs clear. This will allow for sediment/manganese to work its way through the system.
  • Take screens off sinks, and check for trapped particles if low pressure.
  • Run cold water in your sinks till the water runs clear
  • Check for discolored water before doing laundry or running the dishwasher. Re-wash, do not dry stained clothes.
  • Other appliances, like icemakers, dishwasher, and washers may have screens.
  • In some cases, slight discoloration may linger. This discoloration only affects the appearance of the water and not the quality. No health hazards are associated with discolored water from manganese and sediment.
