Cascade Water Alliance is joining Seattle Public Utilities, Tacoma Water and the city of Everett in declaring a regional water advisory.

“Residents and businesses should continue to use water wisely to help ensure sufficient water supply for people and fish,” said Chuck Clarke, Cascade CEO.

After falling short of the District 9 title — they lost to Bellevue for the right to be the host team for the upcoming Junior Softball World Series — the 14-and-under squad rebounded by winning the state championship and advancing to the West Regional tournament, July 23-30 in Tucson, Arizona.
