Public Utility District No. 1 of Klickitat County was established in 1938 and purchases, generates,
transmits, distributes and sells electric energy. The District's service area is approximately 1,680
square miles in Klickitat County, on the central southern border of the state. It also serves small
areas in Yakima, Skamania and Benton counties. In addition, the District owns and operates
water and sewer systems for the communities of Wishram, Roosevelt, Klickitat, Glenwood, Lyle
and for the rural subdivisions of Rimrock Water Association and Ponderosa Park Water. These
systems are operated as separate systems from the electric utility system.
The District employs approximately 70 people and serves approximately 11,100 customers. The
District is administered by an elected, three-member Board of Commissioners. The District has
revenues in excess of $28 million, mostly from operation of the electric system.
