Hearings slated on proposed Clallam PUD water rate increases

Clallam County Public Utility District commissioners will hold public hearings May 16 and 18 on proposed rate increases in its nine water systems.

The first hearing will be at 6 p.m. May 16 at Clallam Bay School, 16933 Highway 112, Clallam Bay. The second will be at 10 a.m. May 18 at the PUD’s Carlsborg Operations Center, 110 Idea Place.

The proposed rate increases are 5 percent applied to both the base charge for water service and the daily charge that is tied to water usage. The proposed rate increases are to pay for future capital projects for the district’s water systems, including a new water treatment plant.

Clallam PUD operates nine water systems — Fairview, Gales Addition, Mount Angeles, Monroe, Carlsborg, Clallam Bay/Sekiu, Panoramic Heights, Evergreen and Island View — that together serve about 3,800 customers.

Although there are still details to attend to and minor adjustments to be made, the facility will be open daily from dawn until dusk.
