Cascade Water Alliance announces water advisory

NEW — 11:35 a.m. July 27, 2015

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

This year’s low snowpack coupled with high temperatures and increased demand have increased the potential for lower water supply availability, according to a news release.

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

“This is a time to assess and reevaluate your own water use,” Clarke added. “Conserve inside your home by washing only full loads in your dishwasher and washing machine. Fix leaking faucets and toilets. Take shorter showers. Turn off the water when brushing your teeth. Take your car to a commercial car wash.” Read more »
