Public Utility District No. 1 of Whatcom County (PUD) is a steward of public assets and resources providing locally controlled utility services for the benefit of the community.
We are your community-based water and electric utility. With a locally elected Board of Commissioners, the PUD has been meeting the utility needs of Whatcom County industries for over 80 years.
PUD #1 is also involved in local and regional environmental matters, salmon habitat/stream flow restoration, along with utility issues, in an effort to better serve everyone in Whatcom County.
In 1937, county citizens voted in support of a PUD. We are one of 28 PUDs in Washington State, and are proud of the tradition of supporting requests for action from the citizens of Whatcom County.
