Capital Improvement Surcharge

In 2013, Skagit PUD’s Board of Commissioners first approved a monthly capital improvement surcharge to help pay for improvements to the PUD’s water distribution system.

The surcharge, which appears on your bill, is based on the fact that Skagit PUD has over 600 miles of water pipelines within Skagit County to maintain.

The $2 per month capital improvement surcharge enables the PUD to continue providing safe and reliable water while maintaining and replacing its existing assets.

Maintaining our system through replacement and rehabilitation is critically important in order to preserve a good level of service, ensure adequate fire flows, minimize outages and maintain water quality. Deferring needed maintenance can result in expensive system repairs.
