The PUD has multiple COVID-19 Assistance Program for customers who need assistance paying their bills due to economic hardships resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Disconnects for non-payment and late fees are currently suspended per Governor's Proclamation 20-23.7.

Grays Harbor PUD telecom and line crews have worked together to hang over 30,000 feet of utility fiber cable running from Elma to the Shouweiller Road, a crucial step toward the completion of the East County Fiber Project.  When completed the line will provide the backbone of a state funded stretch of telecommunications line that will improve fiber optic cable connections to the Elma and Satsop School Districts, the Schouweiller industrial park and local homes and businesses.

The project was funded by $463-thousand dollars of the state’s 2017-19 Capital Budget, approved by the state legislature in January of last year.  In addition, to the East County project, legislators have been debating and fine tuning other legislation designed to expand and improve internet services in rural Washington.
