Everett, Seattle, and Tacoma have deactivated their Water Shortage Response Plans due to the overall shift in the weather pattern and the return to typical wet November weather.
Recent rains have saturated the ground, filled reservoirs, and generally reset the three cities’ water supplies to normal conditions.
The cities thank their customers for helping the region stretch their water supplies to meet the needs of people and fish in this unprecedented year.
The cities are aware of the strong El Nino, which is expected to bring warmer than normal weather and could result in below normal snowpack in 2016. We are closely monitoring the weather and will make operational adjustments as needed to carefully manage the water systems this winter and into the spring.
The Saving Water Partnership is a group of local water utilities in Seattle and King County working together to help customers save water and money. This website is also temporarily being used to support the Everett and Tacoma regional water systems.
See salmon in local streams this fall. We’re partnering with Salmon SEEson because saving water keeps water in the rivers for salmon, people, and wildlife. View sighting dates and locations.

Before the cold weather comes, insulate pipes and outdoor faucets to prevent them from freezing, bursting, and leaking.
