Seth Zuckerman


VASHON, WA 98070

Education: A.B in Energy Studies (individually designed); M.Sc. in Energy and Resources
Occupation: Executive Director, Northwest Natural Resource Group

As water commissioner, I have aimed to ensure a sustainable supply of safe and affordable water for all the district’s inhabitants.


Since I joined the commission in 2018, the district has: completed its water system plan to better understand the resources available to us; devised a plan to reinvest in our aging infrastructure, thereby reducing wasteful leakage and increasing the supply available to serve our customers; revised the rate structure to pay for those investments; included the first 25 gallons a day in the base charge, to keep water affordable for low-income residents; lifted a moratorium on issuing new water shares first imposed before the turn of the century; and updated the water requirements for multi-family housing to more accurately reflect the low demand those dwellings place on our system.  


I would be honored to serve another term on the commission.
