Marysville crews respond to water main break at State Avenue & 100th Street NE

 


City crews responded to notification of a water main break at State Avenue & 100th Street NE early Monday morning. Within the initial hours, Public works employees were able to shut down water to the break, isolate the broken pipe section, as well as reopen the roadway. They continue to work on assessing the cause of the break, as well as identify service restoration options and repair of the line. Approximately 20 customer accounts west of State Avenue are without water service. These include a number of businesses from the 9600 block of State Avenue up to 100th Street NE. This also includes the Brookside mobile home park and its residents.

Staff are working to reroute water to the area from other sources and distribution lines so that the businesses and homeowners will have water through the duration of the repair. City crews are hopeful that service can be restored by early afternoon.

City customers at 88th Street and east of I-5 will experience reduced pressures while the water system piping is temporarily reconfigured. This will last until the permanent repairs are made. The Tulalip Tribes are aware that we are not presently supplying water at the 88th Street connection. They are monitoring their reservoir level and will supplement with alternative sources (wells) if necessary.

If customers have questions about their service, they may call Utilities Customer Service at 360-363-8001. Updates will be posted to the city’s website at http://www.marysvillewa.gov.
