The History of Thurston PUD

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 275 water systems, serving over 7,850 families, businesses, schools, and parks. 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, one water system in King County, and a few water systems in Grays Harbor and Kitsap counties.


Public Meetings

The PUD is governed by three Commissioners, elected by the voters of Thurston County and  elected to serve for 6 years. The Commissioners represent the three PUD Commission districts in Thurston County. Commission meetings are held on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month at the PUD offices at 1230 Ruddell Road SE, in Lacey, WA.
The meetings start at 5:00 p.m. and are open to the public. Meeting cancellations and other special meetings that may be scheduled are posted on the front of our website.
