TRICO was honored to win an Associated General Contractors 2018 Build Washington Award for Construction Excellence for Mundt Creek Intake Improvements.
For Skagit PUD, maintaining and improving valuable assets play a significant role in being a good steward of water resources.
Of over 150 public water systems in Skagit County, the Judy Reservoir System ranks most important due to the large number of customers served and role as the county-wide Satellite Management Agency.
In the Cultus Mountain watershed, Mundt Creek, one of four streams, provides 16 percent of the water for Judy Reservoir.
A diversion was constructed in 1967 to collect water through a 6’X4’ screen on Mundt Creek’s streambed into an intake structure. Clogged with debris, the structure limited the required water diverted to the reservoir. Old screen technology, eroding concrete and constant maintenance necessitated replacement.
The Owner designed a new screen and headworks structure to eliminate maintenance with a self-cleaning screen and improved structure to capture more water from the creek.
Congratulations to the entire project team.
