Due to continued nationwide supply chain disruption caused by COVID-19, Mason PUD 3 has depleted its supply of 320 amp meters. Although there are shipments expected to arrive in the near future, any new or existing jobs requiring the installation of a 320 amp meter may be delayed connection until further notice. Read more about our Material Shortages and Supply Chain Disruptions here.



PUD 3 has a board of elected commissioners to be the policy-makers for the utility.

A three-member commission is responsible for operating Mason PUD 3.

Their job includes setting policies for running PUD 3, adopting a budget each year, and determining rates and charges for services.

The commissioners meet twice each month at the Johns Prairie operations center in Shelton. The meetings usually start at 10:00 a.m. and the full schedule is available here.

Each of the PUD commission districts have about the same number of voters. A commissioner is elected from each of the three districts every two years to serve a six-year term.

A map of the commission districts is available here.
