Clackamas County and Milwaukie have reached a tentative agreement on a new 25-year sewer contract.

An agreement in 2010 set the rates that Milwaukie must pay the county through this June, from August 2009, when the county terminated the city’s contract. Unlike other cities and areas that are members of Clackamas County Service District No. 1, Milwaukie is a wholesale customer, and that arrangement will remain under the latest tentative deal.
