Power outage causes Everett water line to rupture
EVERETT — A power outage at a pump station in Clearview caused a water line to break in Everett, leaving 80 households without water Saturday in the Lowell-Larimer Road neighborhood.
Water service was expected to be restored to the area by late Saturday or early today, city of Everett spokeswoman Kate Reardon said.
The power outage at the Clearview station was caused by Friday’s windstorms, Reardon said. The outage caused a surge through the water line, which resulted in the line break, Reardon said. The water line was shut down early Saturday.
