COVID-19 Office Closure - Update

On March 23, 2020, Governor Jay Inslee issued a "stay at home" order in an attempt to slow and reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.  In observance of the Governor's order, Summit Water's office has been closed until further notice with all office staff telecommuting from their homes.  We will continue to accept payments via the US Postal Service (mail), on-line or by dropping the payment off in the mail/payment slot to the left of the front office door.

Customers will still have the capability of communicating with Summit Water staff by voicemail at (253) 537-7781 or by email at service@summitwater.org, as staff will be periodically checking messages and responding to them on a priority and as needed basis (for water service related emergencies please call 253-255-2608).

Summit Water would like to reassure its members and customers that safe, clean drinking water will continue to be delivered to your homes and businesses and that we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause but the safety and welfare of our customers, employees and their families is our highest priority.

Summit Water is a non-profit, member owned company, which requires every connection to the system to purchase a membership prior to receiving service. 

Membership fees are the same cost for each connection however, there are an assortment of fees and charges based on (but not limited to) meter size, fire flow requirements and type of use. These funds are set aside for future projects such as storage facilities, water sources (wells), mainline / system upgrades and other miscellaneous projects throughout the system.

Our Mission

Summit Water & Supply is dedicated to ensuring delivery of a reliable supply of safe, clean, quality drinking water at the most effective cost to all our members and customers.





Summit Water & Supply Company is a water purveyor located in east Tacoma in unincorporated Pierce County, Washington State.

We have been in business since 1923 and currently have about 5,220 connections.

We currently provide potable water to our customers from ground water sources only.

Our current storage capacity is approximately 7.1 million gallons.

Our pumping capacity is roughly 3,500 gallons per minute (gpm) with a water right of 2,800 gpm.  Summit Water also has an additional 1,390 gpm available by wholesale agreement from Lakewood Water.  We are currently in negotiations with Lakewood Water in hopes of securing an additional 1.0 million gallons per day (MGD), which would increase our wholesale flow to nearly 2,100 gpm or 3.0 MGD. 




Annual meetings are held on the second Tuesday in April. 

An annual letter is sent out each year to the members of the Company that covers a wide range of events and information about the Company and also list the date, time and location of the annual meeting. 

If you are an owner of a property served by Summit Water and wish to have a voting voice in company affairs you must provide proper documentation showing proof of ownership of the property to which a membership is tied to, at least one business day prior to the Annual Meeting.

Members who have provided proper documentation (most commonly used is a Statutory Warranty Deed), will be eligible to vote on company business.
