Pipes just south of the Hewitt Trestle bring water into Everett.

The Everett City Council today passed a resolution dedicating the efforts of the city council and mayor to protect and secure the City of Everett’s regional water supply system.

Also to protecting the safety and integrity of the regional water source and the delivery system. The Everett system supplies about 570,000 people or 80 percent of the businesses and residents of Snohomish County through a network of local providers.

So why a resolution? After the unanimous vote City Council member Brenda Stonecipher said they wanted to send a clear message to Everett utility customers that issues that have been surrounding the Dakota Access Pipeline would not happen here. “We want to reassure people who have been concerned about what happened in the Dakotas that no one would be building a gas pipeline under or near our water system,” Stonecipher told MyEverettNews.com.
