What We Are -- Who We Serve
Skyway Water & Sewer District is a Special Purpose District located in the West Hill area of unincorporated King County. The West Hill area includes the neighborhoods of Bryn Mawr, Campbell Hill, Earlington, Hilltop, Lakeridge, Panorama View, Skycrest and Skyway. The District shares service boundaries with the cities of Renton, Tukwila, Seattle, and King County Water District #125. Skyway's service area is approximately 1.8 square miles for water (serving 3,350 customers) and 2.7 square miles for sewer (serving 4,050 customers). The District maintains approximately 40 miles of water mains and 48 miles of sewer system piping.
How We Operate
As a local municipality, Skyway operates under the authority of Title 57 of the Revised Code of Washington. The District is subject to Federal, State and Local regulations. Three local citizens are elected to Skyway's Board of Commissioners by voters living within the District's Boundaries. The Board of Commissioners establishes District water and sewer rates, sets policies, and oversees operations. The Board meets regularly on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. All meetings are open to the public. Day to Day District administrative and operational duties are carried out by a nine-member staff along with consulting engineers and counsel.
Our Water Supply Remains Good
Skyway Water and Sewer District has three separate sources of water: Cascade Water Alliance (Seattle Public Utilities), City of Renton, and District Wells. Seattle, Tacoma and Everett’s water supplies are good, despite the statewide drought declaration. Many areas of our state are facing drought conditions; however, we are fortunate that our water supply outlook remains good.
Although saving water within our District won’t help our neighbors in drought-stricken parts of the state, we ask our customers to continue to use water wisely as they would in any other year.
