Gilligan CreekSince 1936, Skagit PUD has been committed to providing safe and reliable utility services to meet the current and future needs of Skagit County.

Skagit PUD operates the county’s most extensive water system, providing nine million gallons of piped water to approximately 85,000 people every day. The PUD maintains over 600 miles of pipelines and has over 31 million gallons of storage volume.

The cities of Mount Vernon, Burlington, and Sedro-Woolley receive the majority of our water. Due to public demand for quality water, the PUD also provides service to unincorporated and remote county areas.

The PUD’s service area stretches to Fidalgo Island at the county’s west end and extends east to Marblemount. The PUD’s service area starts in Alger/Lake Samish and extends south to Conway.

Our water originates in the protected Cultus Mountain watershed area east of Clear Lake. Water from this area is piped to Judy Reservoir, where it covers 148 surface acres and stores approximately 1.5 billion gallons of water. The water is then treated and filtered to meet Safe Drinking Water Act regulations, using modern water treatment technologies.

Skagit PUD is a municipal corporation governed by three elected commissioners who serve six-year terms. The commissioners represent the same geographical districts as the Skagit County commissioners. The positions are non-partisan, and elections are staggered every two years.

Resource conservation and stewardship are increasing concerns of the PUD. Recognizing the value of water resources in Skagit County, the PUD is a member of the Skagit Watershed Council and participates in protecting in-stream flows.

Whether it’s utilizing cutting-edge technologies, practicing resource management, or encouraging conservation stewardship, Skagit PUD is committed to meeting our customers’ needs.
