Everett water utility staff will need to take transmission line 3 out of service Sep. 27 to 30 to connect a new pipe to the system. The work on transmission line 3 will cause individual and group B customers connected to it to be without service for up to 72 hours. 

The new pipe is necessary because the City of Lake Stevens is constructing a new road (91st Street) along the City’s two, three, four transmission line corridor. As part of this construction work, the transmission lines will be realigned and replaced in this location by a contractor hired by Lake Stevens. 

Public Works conducted two virtual open houses in September for stakeholders impacted by the transmission line three shutdown. Please click here to access the recording of the open houses. Please note that this is a recording of the 7 p.m. virtual open house followed by the Q&A sessions from both open houses. The slide presentation shown at the open houses can be found at this link.

Everett’s environmental laboratory is capable of analyzing water quality samples for drinking water purity. Sample bottles are available and can be picked up either at the Service Center or at the Waste Water Treatment Plant on Smith Island. There is a nominal fee for these lab services; results are provided within 24 hours. If you need assistance, call our Dispatch/Operator at 425-257-8821 and ask for the Water Quality Analyst on duty.
