Brown water in Gatewood

The photo shows a bathtub full of the brown water that at least one Gatewood household has been dealing with today. They’ve reported it but didn’t get an explanation. Anyone else? Any time this happens, be sure to report it via the Seattle Public Utilities 24/7 line, 206-386-1800.

    This made me remember trips to the Scottish Highlands where the bath water looks like this.  But it’s because of the peat water that makes the whiskey!

    SPU has a truck in front of my house near Murray, something must be up, it’s kinds late for them, and my neighbor had brown water today.

      Be sure to call 206-386-1800. Let us know if they mention a water break; we haven’t heard of one so it could also be hydrant testing…

Sorry, comment time is over.
