PUD Issues Reminder For Spring Digging

You break it, you pay for it so before you dig call 8-1-1. Snohomish PUD has issued their annual springtime warning for those who like to dig in the dirt…

8-1-1

Hey…Don’t become one of our news stories, call two days before you dig.

There’s warmer weather coming soon, and many of us will be tackling outdoor projects. Snohomish County Public Utility District reminds its customers to plan ahead to prevent accidentally hitting an underground utility line when digging.

PUD customers should use the “Call before you dig” hotline at 811 at least two working days ahead of time before starting a digging project of more than 12 inches deep, including landscaping, remodeling and fencing. 811 hotline staff will work to provide the locations of lines that serve power, gas, water, sewer and/or telephone utilities that are located along the right of way of a resident’s property.

The PUD owns and maintains underground services on private property for residential single family homes and will mark lines up to customers’ meters. Apartment buildings, schools and mobile home parks may need to retain a private locator, depending on meter locations. Private locators are available to provide this service for a fee.

The “Call before you dig” 811 hotline is a free service, which is required by law. Severed utility cables or water lines not only inconvenience people, they are expensive to repair. If you dig in and interrupt power or water service, it is restored at your cost. Be sure to call ahead!

Everett Wants To Know What You Think About Stormwater

Stormwater. Not exactly the sexiest, most-exciting topic on one’s mind but given all the rain we’ve had over the last six months it may be moving up your list. The City of Everett is asking residents to comment on the stormwater plan for this year so here’s the information if you are so inclined…

The City of Everett developed a Stormwater Management Program (SWMP) in 2017 to meet the requirements of the Western Washington Phase II Municipal Stormwater Permit. Yearly updates of the program are required.

The City’s SWMP document describes actions the city will take throughout 2017 to maintain compliance with the Permit’s SWMP conditions, which are designed to reduce stormwater runoff pollution to Everett’s waterways.

The Municipal Stormwater Permit is a requirement of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permits Program in the Federal Clean Water Act. Permit authority in Washington state has been delegated to the State Department of Ecology. Ecology issued a Phase II Municipal Stormwater General Permit to more than 100 municipalities, including Everett, in 2013.

The updated 2017 SWMP information can be found on the City’s website at everettwa.gov/SWMP, or call 425-257-8800 to have a copy mailed to you. There is no deadline for submitting comments or questions on this document. Address comments and questions to Heather Griffin by email at hgriffin@everettwa.gov or call 425-257-7206.

Everett You Have One Week Left To De-Stud Your Tires

Studs have to be off by April 1st (no foolin’)

You can still hear them clickity-clacking along Everett streets but in one week that becomes a very expensive sound as studded tires become illegal on April 1st. Here’s the annual reminder from the State Transportation folks…

Spring is here and that means drivers in Washington have until Friday, March 31, to remove their winter studded tires.

The Washington State Department of Transportation reminds drivers that state law requires all studded tires to be removed by the end of the day March 31. Starting April 1, drivers with studded tires face a $136 traffic infraction.

Studded tires also damage pavement, so removing them promptly after winter has passed helps preserve state roadways. Tire removal services can get crowded as the removal deadline approaches, so please plan accordingly.

WSDOT will not be extending the studded tire deadline this year, but crews will continue to monitor roads, passes, and forecasts and work to clear any late season snow or ice. Travelers are always advised to “know before you go” by checking road conditions before heading out and staying up-to-date on changes by using WSDOT’s social media and email alert tools or calling the 5-1-1 road conditions report.

Washington and Oregon share the same studded tire removal deadline. Other states may have later dates, but the Washington law applies to all drivers in the state, even visitors. No personal exemptions or waivers are issued.

More information about studded tire regulations in Washington is available online.
