Taylor Shellfish
Chris Pitre first helped Taylor Shellfish in 2002 to secure a
new groundwater right in a watershed closed to further
consumptive use under an instream flow rule. This was made
possible by management of treated water to offset impacts,
and allowed financing of a large state-of-the-art shellfish
processing facility.

Since then, Coho has installed a new water supply well,
renewed a State Waste Discharge Permit, and secured
Washington Department of Health source approvals.  Coho
has also worked at Taylors’ Samish facility in Skagit County
providing supply/demand and water rights self-assessment
analysis of a water system to meet facility conversion and
expansion to meet Small Water System Planning

Coho Water is currently further securing this water supply by
rehabilitating existing wells to increase well yield and reduce
pumping costs, and installing a third supply well for increased
reliability and redundancy. Coho continues to serve Taylors on
a variety of projects.
