The City’s transmission lines are part of a regional water supply system that serves about 600,000 people throughout Snohomish County. Their primary function is to carry potable water to City of Everett reservoirs and to deliver water to our customers, from our largest wholesaler to single families. Transmission lines need regular maintenance that requires us to shut off water service to a portion of our customers in the affected area.
On Wednesday, April 24, at 1 a.m., crews will close service connections on part of Transmission Line 5.
This transmission line shutdown will impact many customers. Work is being coordinated with the Washington State Department of Health and the Snohomish County Health District to protect the integrity of the water system, with robust communications to effected customers and water systems. TL5 is one of 4 pipelines that carry water from the Water Filtration Plant to the City of Everett for distribution to local customers and regional water systems.
The City of Everett Environmental Laboratory lab, accredited by the Washington Department of Ecology and the Washington Department of Health, is available to wholesale water customers for water quality testing. More information about the lab's services and costs.
