On a day when the city asked residents to start voluntarily cutting back water use by 10 percent due to drought, another water main has broken in Everett.

The break is on 46th street just west of Evergreen Way and was reported shortly before 4:00pm.

Everett Public Works crews are on the scene and working to find out the severity of the problem.

At least one homeowner in the 4300 block of Grand had their garage flooded and the front yard of a home at 42nd and Grand also sustained some water damage.

Mikie’s Restaurant had to close and other businesses in the area are also affected.

A neighbor tells MyEverettNews.com this is the 3rd time this has happened in the neighborhood in recent memory.

Here are a few MyEverettNews.com photos from the scene. Click to enlarge.

    Makes you wonder about the quality of pipes the city uses this seems to keep happening

    • John Wayne Says:

      It should be no surprise. The tax money the city had was squandered on more important things such as parking lot studies, painting bike lanes, and solar garbage receptacles for example. Fixing aging infrastructure takes a back seat to more popular expenditures.
