Discolored water in north Everett not a concern

Discolored water coming out of the tap in north Everett homes today is not a health concern, city officials say.

A city water main break near Chestnut Street and Hewitt Avenue about 8:45 this morning has stirred up iron sediment in the drinking water in parts of north Everett.

City crews are repairing the line and have turned off water to six customers. Water to those customers is expected to be back on about 1 p.m.

City crews advise that if you are experiencing discolored water, you might want to refrain from washing light-colored laundry. After the line is repaired this afternoon, run the cold water in the bathtub for 15 minutes until the water turns clear. If tap water remains discolored, call the public works line at 425-257-8821.
