PUD to hold public hearing on rate increase


November 13, 2012

The Snohomish County Public Utility District will hold a public hearing on Monday, November 19, 2012, at 1:30 p.m., to consider a proposed retail water rate increase. The proposal calls for 4.3 percent rate increases each year, from 2013 to 2016. The main drivers for the rate increase proposal are higher wholesale water rates, capital expenses for improvements to the water system and inflation.

The meeting will take place at the PUD Electric Building Headquarters at 2320 California Street in Everett.

If customers cannot attend the public hearing, but would like to submit comments to the PUD Commission Office they can call 425-783-8611, send an email to or write a letter to Snohomish County PUD Board of Commissioners at PO Box 1107, Everett, WA 98206-1107.
