The District is directed by five commissioners elected by Chelan County voters. Commissioners oversee a utility system that includes electricity, local water, wastewater and wholesale fiber-optic services.
We rely on the mighty Columbia River for much of our hydropower generation and we're proud to take a leadership role in environmental stewardship as related to this great river system. Each year we dedicate millions of dollars and thousands of work hours to protect and enhance fish, wildlife and plant ecosystems. As part of hydropower operations, we've also built 14 parks that serve more than 3 million visitors each year.
The belief that local people are the best stewards of local resources has guided our actions for more than 75 years. Our ties to the river, local residents and the region are long and strong.
