About Lummi Tribal Sewer and Water District
Lummi Tribal Sewer & Water Districts were originally established in 1976 as a component of the Lummi Nation. The construction of the sewer system began in 1983 and the District is the sole provider of sewer service to approximately 1,600 connections within the Lummi Nation.
The installation of the water system began in the mid 1960’s with the vision and leadership of several Tribal members and grants from the Indian Health Service. It currently serves approximately 1,100 connections primarily on the Lummi Peninsula. Sandy Point is served primarily by the Sandy Point Improvement Company.
The District is operated by a full-time staff of 15, a five member Sewer Board, and a three member Tribal Water Board. The District has an annual operations and maintenance budget of about $2.1 million dollars.
