Owned By The People We Serve.
On November 3, 1936, Public Utility District No. 1 of Skagit County was formed by voters with an approval of 6,173 to 4,971. Within 10 years, the PUD purchased the private water systems that served the cities of Mount Vernon, Burlington and Sedro-Woolley and consolidated them into one large water system serving most of the Skagit Valley.
Skagit PUD operates the largest water system in the county, providing nine million gallons of piped water to approximately 65,000 people every day. The PUD maintains nearly 600 miles of pipelines and has over 31 million gallons of storage volume.
Did you know Skagit PUD won accolades for its great tasting water, placing best in the Pacific Northwest and fourth in the nation at American Water Works Association taste test competitions?
