Fire Tax Collection

The fire tax invoices were mailed on December 27th, 2019. You can pay the tax in two (2) payments if you like. The first payment is due January 30, 2020 and the balance due April 30, 2020. If you have questions about the fire tax please dont hesitate to contact our office.

The District will be conducting a survey shortly asking for your input about the Volunteer Fire Department and the fire tax. Please watch for info in your utility bill and check our website at www.herlongpud.com.

PFOA Sample Results

PFOA's are an emerging contaminant that is showing up all over the country. PFOA's are found in thousands of products that are used everyday. The negative health effects are of enough concern that HPUD decided sampling for PFOA's before there is a requirement to do so by the USEPA or the State of California was the right thing to do. HPUD sampled our sources on August 19, 2019. All results were "ND" or "Non Detect". If you have any questions about PFOA's or would like a copy of the lab results please contact our office.
