The latest West Seattle brown-water reports

We’ve had two reports of brown water today – Barrie in Admiral reported it late this morning, and Katie west of The Junction just emailed to say, “We’ve got brown water at 45th and Alaska.” We also received one report, with a photo, on Tuesday:

Brian in Gatewood/south Morgan Junction sent that, reporting, “This is like the 4th time this year,” in the 4300 block of SW Frontenac.

The Seattle Public Utilities water-trouble map shows an emergency repair last night near 20th/Roxbury, but that’s not close enough to factor into any of the aforementioned reports, so hydrant testing might be the culprit; if it happens to you, always report it to SPU’s hotline, 206-386-1800.

    We had about two hours of brown water on 47th and Admiral Way.

    It’s a bit hard to believe that testing is so prevalent in WS.  This has been going on constantly for several years, and I just don’t believe that SPU is so persistent that this problem could arise on a weekly basis in different areas of the peninsula.  Isn’t it more likely that our infrastructure is garbage?  Just think about what your drinking water is passing through every day…

Sorry, comment time is over.
