To ensure that all Skagit PUD infrastructure is constructed to the highest possible standards, the Engineering Department has developed various drawing, design, and construction standards adopted by the PUD’s Board of Commissioners. These standards are used on both PUD projects and developer projects.

Standard General Notes and Procedures

Skagit PUD’s standard general notes are to be included on all design drawings related to PUD infrastructure projects.

  • Standard General Notes
    Standard General Notes for developer projects (Minimum Requirements). Engineer’s notes may be more stringent.

Drawing Standards

Skagit PUD’s drawing standards apply to the design of any water distribution facilities submitted to the PUD for approval.

In the case of a project that includes the design of multiple utilities, the design engineer may use their own AutoCAD standards and cover sheet layout. However, the PUD still requires that the design of the water distribution facilities be provided separately from the other utilities, following the format as described.

Standard Details

Skagit PUD lists standard details for all PUD and developer projects. They have been developed by Skagit PUD staff and are intended to communicate acceptable design and construction standards to the design engineer.

The standard details are available for download in .tif format and are not intended to be modified by designers on a project-to-project basis. Each detail is signed and dated by the PUD's engineering manager, and the most current version must be included on the design drawings. The design engineer of record is responsible for standard details being used as originally intended.

If standard details need to be modified based on project needs, please contact Skagit PUD to review project requirements.
