Possible Summer Water Shortage? SPU Data Helps Address Questions

Our historically low snowpack, coupled with Eastern Washington and California conditions, has provoked many questions about our long-term water supply.

Northshore’s water is supplied through Seattle Public Utilities, who oversee the general management of the water supply.  SPU and other experts have issued official statements about our short-term and long-term water supply outlook, linked below.

The basics:
Because SPU managers have changed how they store our water, our rainfall and reservoir supply look plentiful enough to carry us through the dry season this year.  It is always wise to monitor our water use, but not necessary at this time to ration.  SPU is keeping close watch on our changing weather patterns, to ensure our supply will continue to suffice over the long term.
