Skagit PUD is currently conducting needed upgrades to its chemical feed system at the Judy Reservoir Water Treatment Plant (WTP). The upgrades are anticipated to be finished later in the spring.
Throughout the disinfection process, the WTP adds a variety of different chemicals to raw water to kill germs, improve taste, remove odor and minerals that can cause staining, and help settle out particles in the water.
During the upgrade, customers may experience periodic changes in the water characteristics, including the occasional presence of a chlorine smell or metallic taste. Please be assured that your water continues to be safe to drink and meets all requirements set forth by the Washington State Department of Health. Any changes to water conditions will be short-lived, and differences in taste or smell are expected to be minimal. We appreciate your patience.
If you have questions or concerns about your water quality, please contact Emilia Blake, Water Quality / Water Treatment Plant Lab Coordinator, at (360) 848-2135 or email@example.com.
