Water Supply Update – 11/10/15

November 10, 2015 – SPU Water Supply Update

Recent rains have improved our region’s water supply. Now cautiously optimistic about water supply conditions, Seattle Public Utilities (Northshore Utility’s water supplier), along with the cities of Everett and Tacoma, is moving to the lowest stage of its Water Shortage Response Plan, the advisory stage.

Conditions no longer warrant being in the “voluntary” stage, in which customers were asked to reduce water use by 10 percent. The advisory stage means that a potential water supply problem may exist.

This is still the case due to an ongoing strong El Nino that is expected to bring warm weather through the spring. While in the advisory stage, the cities ask customers to use water wisely by not wasting it.

We thank customers for helping the region stretch its water supplies to meet the needs of people and fish in this unprecedented year.

Using water wisely is always a good idea.  Find water-saving tips and leak-fixing tutorials at www.savingwater.org.
