Public Utility District No. 1 of Thurston County (Thurston PUD) was
officially formed in 1938 by a vote of the people. We currently own and
operate 160 water systems, approximately 3,500 families, businesses and
schools. The PUD also manages 15 water systems for other owners
representing over 900 families. Thurston PUD provides water planning and
utility services to the citizens of Thurston County, and also own and
operate water systems in Pierce and Lewis counties and a few water
systems in Grays Harbor and Mason counties.
The PUD is governed by three Commissioners, elected by voters of
Thurston County, elected to serve on the Board for 6 years. The
Commissioners represent the three districts in Thurston County.
Commission meetings are held the second and fourth Tuesday of every
month at the PUD offices at 921 Lakeridge Way SW, Suite 301 in Olympia.
The meetings start at 5:00 p.m. and are open to the public.
