Rep. Ryu is a veteran legislator who chairs the House Community Development Committee, and serves on the House Capital Budget Committee. A former city council member, Rep. Ryu has long recognized the value of the Public Works Trust Fund in providing sewer and water districts access to low interest loans to improve infrastructure and brought her commitment to the success of the program to her involvement in negotiating HB 1677.

A plaque recognizing Representative Ryu was presented on Monday, August 21, 2017 at the North City Water District office in Shoreline.

Founded in 1995, the Washington Association of Sewer and Water Districts represents the state’s special purpose sewer and water districts. These districts provide 19% of Washington’s citizens with clean affordable water and 14% of its citizens with sewer services. There are 182 special purpose sewer and water districts in the state.

One of the Association’s roles is to provide education and training to elected district commissioners and continuing education classes for general managers and certified operators of water and wastewater treatment plants. It also fosters increased communication between members and encourages standardization of water and sewer methods and services bringing benefits to ratepayers.

The Association represents the interests of special purpose districts in the Washington legislature and with state and local regulatory agencies.
