At approximately 9:15 a.m. Nov. 18, the Northshore Utility District was notified that private construction crews working on NE 124th Street between 94th Place NE and 95th Avenue NE hit a 12-inch water main. The district responded immediately to isolate the broken water main and begin repairs.

All available crews were dispatched to work on the repair, and it was anticipated the repairs would be finished and water service would be restored to all affected customers by 4 p.m. Nov. 18.

The district was notified of several instances of disturbed or discolored water within a 10-12 block radius of the construction site as a result of the break. The district advises all customers experiencing discolored water to flush with cold water from from a bathtub or high-flow fixture for approximately 10-15 minutes to clear the discoloration.

Crews will be working throughout the evening to flush water through the water mains in the affected areas. If customers continue to experience water quality or pressure issues, call the district at 425-398-4403.
