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.
