City of Edmonds waterline replacements underway in seven locations

Vicinity mapThe City of Edmonds Wednesday began replacing or repairing existing waterlines throughout the city as part of its 2016 Waterline Replacement Project.

The site locations are:
1: 217th Street Southwest (West of 88th Ave West)
2: 12th Avenue North (between Vista Place and Highland Drive) and
Sierra Street (West of 92nd Avenue West)
3: 87th Avenue West (South of 202nd Street Southwest)
4: Northstream Lane (West of 9th Ave West)
5: 192nd Street Southwest (between 94th Avenue West and 93rd Place West)
and 93rd Place West (South of 192nd Street Southwest)
6: Sierra Drive (between 80th Avenue West to 81st Place West), 80th Place (North of Sierra Drive) and 81st Place (South of Sierra Drive)
7: 182nd Place Southwest (East of 72nd Avenue West)

The project will replace existing waterlines nearing the end of their life cycle and improve overall pressure, fire flow, and capacity to the existing water system. Expect temporary delays for traffic control operations during construction.

In addition, the installation of waterlines may require temporary shutoffs to allow for the switch over from the existing waterline to the new waterline. If a shutoff is required, notices with the time and date will be sent to the affected users three days prior to the shutoff.

If you have questions, contact Project Manager Henry Schroder at 425-771-0220.

  1. Will there be any removal of trees and shrubs in these projects? The project could include planting of natives to replace what (if any) shrubs or trees are removed. Fall is a perfect time to plant natives.

  2. Thanks for the information. The Tree board is on the alert for appropriate places to put trees or shrubs.

    1. I’m sure Public Works Director Phil Williams can weigh in, but residents recently received the City of Edmonds 2016 annual water quality report on drinking water, which the EPA requires be sent to residents. If I’m reading it correctly, our drinking water complies with EPA standards.

  3. MEN is correct, our water tested just fine including the testing of 108 homes and 100% passed. Lead can come from fixtures and supply lines to a home which are the responsibility of a home owner. If one is concerned you can buy a testing kit for a few bucks and see if your home is ok.
    I know I have metal contamination in my body, I am often told I have silver in my hair, gold in my teeth and lead in my a–. But so far still kicking.
