Farewell and best wishes to Commissioner Clyde Leach
Dr. Leach was first appointed to the PUD Board of Commissioners representing District #3 in April 1996. He was then elected and served three consecutive terms for a total of 19 years. One of Dr. Leach’s most notable accomplishments at the PUD, together with his wife Connie, was to secure funding to build a new water storage reservoir in the Underwood water system significantly improving firefighting capacity following the 2007 wildfire. The reservoir carries his wife’s name-sake, Connie Reservoir. In December 2014, Dr. Leach was recognized with the Washington PUD Association’s Heritage Life Member Award. We appreciate Clyde’s many years of devoted service to the PUD.
