Reconnection Charges Set to Increase

Posted Wednesday, January 24, 2018

Skagit PUD commissioners ratified an increase to reconnection charges at their regular meeting held January 9. The increases are slated to go into effect on January 29.

Water services that are disconnected are levied a charge for turn on/reconnection. Turn on/reconnection charges vary based on the time and day the turn on/reconnection is completed. The new rates are as follows:

  • Turn On/Reconnection (8 AM to 4 PM, M-F, excluding Holidays) ..........$80
  • Turn On/Reconnection (After the Above Hours M-F, or on Saturday).....$220
  • Turn On/Reconnection (Sundays and Holidays).....................................$280

Additionally, service deposits for new residential accounts are increasing to $215.

Service deposits are calculated based on two times the two-month average billing. The charge is determined from time-to-time when water rates are adjusted or increased.
