UPDATE: Brown water in West Seattle

8:54 PM: Reported by Nick: “We’ve got brown water in our taps. Started after 5 pm tonight. Near Madison Middle School (48th and Spokane).” It’s been reported to Seattle Public Utilities (206-386-1800 if it ever happens to you); no nearby outages on the SPU map currently.

10:59 PM: We’ve also heard from Jonathan, who says, “I also called SPU regarding brown water in Seaview. Got a call back and sounded like the fire department was flushing the hydrants, which stirred up sediment.”

    They always say flushing the hydrants as an excuse when I call from 4800 hundred block of Fauntleroy. I have NEVER in my adult life lived somewhere that flushes hydrants as much as SPU claims it happens.

Sorry, comment time is over.
