GRANTS PASS – The City of Grants Pass Public Works Department Water Distribution Division now offers bulk water distribution to customers at two locations in the Grants Pass area. Bulk water stations are located at 2480 Williams Hwy. and a new location at Republic Services, 1749 Merlin Road, also known as the former Jo-Gro site.
Bulk water customers must first establish an account with the city’s Finance Customer Service Department. Once customers have an established identification number and user PIN number, they can use the automated system at the distribution center of their choice. Bulk water is priced at $6.50 per 1,000 gallons.
The connection fitting at the Republic Services location is a 3-inch male Cam Lock style fitting. Beginning Oct. 1, the connections at both bulk water stations will be changed to a 3-inch male Cam Lock style fitting. Haulers will need to convert their hoses to accommodate the new fitting. This change is being made to remove restrictions to the fill system and improve the delivery of water.
For additional information, call the Water Distribution Division 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday at (541)450-6115, or visit: https://www.grantspassoregon.gov/1004/Bulk-Water.
