Skagit PUD needs you to reduce water usage
August 31, 2022
Due to seasonal low water flow conditions in the Skagit River, the City of Anacortes and Skagit Public Utility District water customers are asked to voluntarily reduce their water usage by 10%. The Washington State Department of Ecology has established minimum instream flows for the Skagit River. These minimum flow levels fluctuate throughout the year and are designed to protect fish habitat primarily.
There are generally two times a year when we anticipate the Skagit River falling below instream flow levels – once in late winter and early spring, and again in late summer and fall.
