 Pateros is located in the sunny foothills of the eastern Cascades and on the shores of the Columbia and Methow Rivers. 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. We have two water-front hotels, RV and boating facilities, dining establishments, bakery and entertainment, hardware/sporting goods store and numerous festivals in our lakeside parks, including the famous Apple Pie Jamboree. We welcome you to set up your recreation basecamp in Pateros and enjoy all four seasons of outdoor activities!


-Carlene Anders, Mayor



Progress is being made on the downtown pump station. There has been significant work completed on the building and landscaping. There has been some unforeseen challenges, and the project completion is about a month later than expected. We hope to have the new pump station online by the end of November. 

Other City updates can be found in the September Newsletter.

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.

Estimated Faucet Leakage Rates (number of drips)
60 drops/minute=192 gallons/month
90 drops/minute = 31 gallons/month
120 drops/minute = 429 gallons/month
Make sure your home is leak-free. when you are certain that no water is being used, take a reading of the water meter. Wait 30 minutes and then take a second reading. If the meter readings change, you have a leak! You can call Pateros Water Department, 923-2571, if you need help finding your meter.
