Contaminated Water

If you have concerns about your water quality, please call our Public Works Department at 425-670-8264.  

If the water from your tap is clear, then purify by:

  • Boiling it for three minutes. This kills disease-causing bacteria and parasites, OR
  • Adding 1/8 (one-eighth) teaspoon household bleach per gallon of water. Let it sit for one half hour.
  • If water is cloudy:
  • Pour it through a coffee filter and boil it for three minutes. If you can't boil it, filter it and add 1/4 (one-quarter) teaspoon of bleach per gallon. Let it sit for one hour.
