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, serving 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 the voters of Thurston County and  elected to serve for 6 years. The Commissioners represent the three Commission 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.
