[ARCHIVED] Fidalgo Island Water System


Resolution 3048 approving the Fidalgo Island Water System asset transfer and improvement agreement between the City and Public Utility District No. 1 of Skagit County is being brought to the City of Anacortes City Council for consideration on Monday August 9, 2021 at 6:00pm.    


The Fidalgo Island system provides water to the residents of Similk and Dewey Beach, Gibralter, Fidalgo Heights and Summit Park serving 732 residential and commercial connections. Currently, water is purchased through an interconnection with the city of Anacortes, with the source being the Skagit River in Mount Vernon. Water is filtered and chlorinated at the Anacortes water treatment plant on Riverbend Road.


Transferring the Fidalgo Island system from the Skagit PUD to the City of Anacortes will improve maintenance and emergency response times and result in economic and water service-related efficiencies in the continued operation, maintenance and improvement. This benefits Skagit PUD, the City of Anacortes and the Fidalgo Island water system ratepayers.
