Proposed Water Bottling Plant Likely Doesn’t Need Everett City Council Approval

February 10, 2011


As long as the water bottling operation announced by Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon meets zoning requirements, special approval from the Everett City Council won’t be required. Unlike the proposal by Tethys Enterprises, (which was ultimately rejected by Everett Mayor Ray Stephanson after 14 months of negotiations), the plan by Evergreen Bottling is a much smaller venture. Evergreen is reportedly proposing to build a 100 thousand square foot plant that would use 2 million gallons of water a month. The Tethys Enterprises plan called for a plant that covered a million square feet and used 5 million gallons of water a day. Since Evergreen would be using potable city water straight from the tap and paying market rates, no special City Council approval would be necessary. On September 13th, the Anacortes City Council approved an agreement with Tethys Enterprises to use up to 5 million gallons of its water per day at a proposed plant in the area of March Point in Skagit County.
