The Department of Community Development (DCD)
provides staff support to the Water Utility Coordinating
Committee (WUCC). The WUCC maintains the Jefferson County
Coordinated Water System Plan (CWSP).
The CWSP presents a detailed local and state water service delivery
and management program pursuant to the Public Water System
Coordination Act of 1977 (Chapter
70.116 RCW and
Chapter 246-293 WAC). The CWSP provides a process and
strategy for existing water utilities to define their roles in the
adopted land use and projected growth strategies for the area.
The CWSP is based on a cooperative effort among Jefferson County,
Jefferson County PUD No. 1 (PUD), the City of Port Townsend, the
area water utilities, and the State Departments of Health (DoH) and
