PUD acquires Westside water


A resolution officially transferring ownership of the West Side Water Works in Skamokawa to Wahkiakum PUD was adopted at the Board of Commissioners meeting on Tuesday.

Auditor Erin Wilson said that the water crew was doing a walk through with someone from West Side Water Works to locate meters and learn about distribution needs.

“Things are moving forward and we’re making sure we’re going to be ready in the office when it happens,” Wilson said.

“I’m hoping that with a little history, the public will find this a good move,” Commissioner Gene Healy said. “I think it’s to the advantage of this PUD and to them that we look good on this one.”

In other news, Wilson reported on some work being done around the PUD campus. A new door had been installed at one end of the PUD office and stairs will be installed by the end of the month. Next week the parking lot will be resurfaced and re-striped.

Healy gave an update on the Broadband Committee noting that someone from the Department of Commerce would be speaking at the next meeting about funding options.

Travel was approved for two members of the water crew to attend a backflow cause and effect training in Longview in August.

The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, August 7, at 8:30 a.m. in the PUD meeting room.
