Opportunities

Join the Customer Review Panel of Seattle Public Utilities

Represent your community, learn about the utility, and impact SPU’s water and waste work

CRP members work with SPU leadership to provide advice and recommendations to the Mayor and City Council on the utility’s strategic plan and rates. CRP members bring expertise in community, with different professional and life experiences, to ensure SPU fosters healthy people, environment, and economy. SPU actively partners with community to equitably manage water and waste resources for today and for future generations.

Starting in 2021, CRP members will be appointed in one of two cohorts. We actively seek a diverse candidate pool to help inform SPU on its work and vision to become a community-centered utility. Consider joining the Customer Review Panel. Learn more about the CRP’s work and how to get involved here. Apply by April 5. Questions can be sent to Kate Morrison (Catherine.morrison@seattle.gov).
