Brown water in Pigeon Point

Another West Seattle neighborhood is dealing with discolored water – this time, Pigeon Point. Thanks to Matt for the report. No water breaks in that area reported currently, so there are various possible causes – the discoloration is usually from “sediment” getting stirred up in the line, most often rust. If it happens to you, report it to the Seattle Public Utilities round-the-clock hotline at 206-386-1800.

    This happened to me a few days ago and I called and was told the fire department was testing the hydrants in my neighborhood and that was stirring up sediment. They said to check my water again in 1-2 hours and turn on my cold water for 2 minutes. I did that and then I once again had clear water.

Sorry, comment time is over.
