City of Everett public information director Kate Reardon just issued an update on the water main break near 8th and Waverly Avenue this afternoon. Here’s the word as of 8:10pm…
EVERETT – City crews have repaired a 12-inch water main in the 800 block of Waverly Avenue that broke at about 1 p.m. today. The water is back in service. Crews flushed the system as part of the repair, which has caused some sediment in the piping system to get stirred up. As a result, some customers in the area may be experiencing some discoloring of their tap water for the next few hours. The pipe in the system that broke is a 1948 cast iron pipe.
A quick tip: To flush out discolored water, turn on your outside faucet and let the water run clear.
