Water Conservation

Demand on Skamania PUD’s water resources comes from many sources, including population growth, environmental regulation (protecting fish, wildlife and recreation), aging infrastructure resulting in water leaks and business development. Efficient use of water resources ensures a reliable water supply for existing customers and opportunity for community growth and development.

Water Use Efficiency

In 2007, the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) established a Water Use Efficiency Program to ensure efficient operation and management of water systems. With the program came new requirements for municipal water suppliers to set conservation goals and report their performance annually to customers and the DOH.

Through a public forum process, the PUD established measurable water-saving goals for the next six years for both the supply and demand components of the Carson and Underwood water systems. These goals provide a benchmark to measure the success of the PUD’s Water Use Efficiency Program.

The goals are as follows:

  • Reduce the residential peak day demand by 2% over a 6-year period
  • Reduce the peak day demand by 12 gallons per day
