Request Public Records

Public Records

Benton PUD complies with the requirements of the Washington Public Records Act. Our public records are available to members of the public for review, inspection, or as copies. Some records may be exempt from disclosure, either in whole or in part, in accordance with state (RCW 42.56) and/or federal law.

Many of our public records are available on the website. If you are unable to find a record on the website, you may submit a request for records via email or you may download our records request form and submit in person (temporarily suspended, see COVID-19 update) or via regular mail. 

Requests made in person (temporarily suspended, see COVID-19 update) are accepted at our Kennewick office located at 2721 W. 10th Ave., or at our Prosser office located at 250 N. Gap Road, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday.

Our Public Records policy offers complete details of Benton PUD’s public records request process.  Portions of this policy are temporarily suspended, see COVID-19 update
