Water to be shut off for some homes, districts next week

The pipe closing will affect mainly the Snohomish and Monroe areas.

EVERETT — Water service is scheduled to be shut off to some homes around Snohomish and Monroe from Feb. 28 until March 1.

The area affected is between Bickford Avenue and Hand Road. People there are encouraged to prepare for up to two days without service. An online map has been prepared.

The city of Everett, which owns Spada Lake near Sultan, provides drinking water to much of Snohomish County. It plans to disable one of four water pipelines next week while crews work on the system.

Customers connected to that water line might lose all or partial service, and about 100 households have received notifications. Also impacted are 26 small water districts that are linked to that portion of the pipeline. Additional small districts may see reduced water pressure. For more information, visit, or call your water provider.

The disruption is not expected to affect Everett residents.

The shutdown is set to begin at 12:01 a.m. Feb. 28, and last until 6 p.m. March 1.
