Telephone Number: 206-412-5430 Conference ID: 838 103 201# Notice Read Our Newsletter The District publishes two newsletters a year: Spring/Summer, and Fall/Winter. View Our Newsletters News Archive Is your garden hose making your household water funky? During the summer, the most common cause of water taste or odor complaints we receive is a pressurized garden hose that has backflowed into the home’s plumbing system. ​ Here are some tips to help you with this issue: Disconnect the hose and run cold water from your faucet for a few minutes to flush the pipes. Need a sip of water on a hot day? Get it from your internal sources (sink or refrigerator) instead of a garden-variety garden hose which aren’t manufactured for delivering potable (drinking) water. ​ If the taste or odor is still present after detaching the garden hose from external spigots and flushing your pipes, give us a call at 425-337-3647. Solar Power Coming to District Headquarters Department of Commerce grant funding successful In 2022, District staff applied for the Washington State Department of Commerce Solar Retrofit Grant and were successful in acquiring $75,000 in funding to put towards installing 100 kW of solar power at the District Headquarters. In total, the state grant awarded $1.4 million to 14 different projects, adding over 1 MW of power generation to public buildings. There have been significant changes to the project since the conception, including the possibility of receiving an additional rebate of the project cost via new Federal Government legislation. ​ According to preliminary proposals, the estimated project cost will be $325,930, including $30,000 of contingency funding and $75,000 awarded by the Commerce Grant. The federal rebate may amount to an additional 40% reduction in the District’s costs. The District expects installation work to start in possibly March or April of this year, with construction taking less than a month. When complete, a 100 kW AC solar roof array will offset approximately 1/3 of our Headquarters building's electricity consumption. More information about the awardees and program can be found here.

  • PFAS Monitoring | Silver Lake Water & Sewer District | Bothell

    Contact Us Silver Lake Water & Sewer District’s drinking water remains safe and protected from contaminants, including the group of manmade chemicals labeled per- and polyfluoroalkyl (PFAS) substances. The District sources its water from the City of Everett. Due to the protected nature of their watershed, which prohibits activities like firefighting training, manufacturing, and agriculture, there are no point sources of PFAS within our source water. What are Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS)? PFAS are a group of chemicals that are used widely and are commonly found in things like firefighting foam agents, the manufacture of non-stick materials for cooking (such as Teflon), and fabric protectants. ​ Learn More: Environmental Protection Agency Washington State Dep't. of Health Background and History of PFAS Monitoring In 2016, The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a health advisory for drinking water pertaining to two of the compounds found in the PFAS group: Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and Perflourooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS). Health advisory levels are non-enforceable guidelines that are intended to protect human health. The health advisory level is 0.07 parts per billion (ppb) for PFOA and PFOS combined. ​ The Washington State Board of Health (WSBOH) recently revised the Group A drinking water rules to require water systems to monitor for select PFAS compounds beginning in 2023. WSBOH established state action levels (SALs) for five selected PFAS compounds as follows: Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) - 0.010 ppb Perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS) - 0.015 ppb Perfluorononanoic acid (PFNA) - 0.009 ppb Perfluorohexane sulfonic acid (PFHxS) - 0.065 ppb Perfluorobutane sulfonic acid (PFBS) - 0.345 ppb Exceeding a confirmed SAL requires a water system to provide public notification and follow-up monitoring. While exceeding a SAL does not require a water system to treat for the contaminant, the SALs are intended to advise water systems on when to take action to lower contaminant levels to provide for safe, long-term consumption of drinking water. Testing Your Drinking Water for PFAS In 2015, Silver Lake Water & Sewer District participated in monitoring for PFAS in its drinking water under the Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule 3 (UCMR 3). No PFAS compounds were detected in the Districts drinking water as shown in Table 1 below: ​ Table 1: In 2023 through May 2024, the District monitored our drinking water quarterly for an expanded list of PFAS compounds under the EPA’s current Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule (UCMR 5 ) . Once again, no PFAS compounds were detected in the District's drinking water as shown in Table 2 below: ​ Table 2:

  • Cross Connection Control | Silver Lake Water & Sewer District | Bothell

    Contact Us Help Us Keep Your Water Safe with Cross Connection Control Keeping water safe is a two-way street. We rely on you, our customers, to be aware of any cross connection to the water system that you might have on your property, and to protect those connections with a Backflow Prevention Device to ensure the safety of our drinking water. What is a Cross Connection? A cross connection is a point in a plumbing system where it is possible for a non-potable substance to come into contact with the potable drinking water supply. For homeowners, these commonly include irrigation systems, private fire sprinkler systems, boiler systems, and pool or pond equipment. What is Backflow? ​ Backflow occurs when water or other substances flow in the opposite direction than intended—such as the water in an irrigation system flowing back towards the water source once it's turned off—which allows contaminants to enter the public water system or consumer's plumbing. A backflow incident occurs when biological, chemical, or physical contaminants enter the drinking water supply (under backflow conditions) via unprotected cross-connections. Backflow incidents may cause injury, illness, or death. What is Required to Keep Water Safe? ​ In our complex water system, everything is connected. Washington State Administrative Code (WAC 246-290-490 ) requires customers to install, maintain, and test Backflow Prevention assemblies (examples shown above) to keep pollutants and contaminants from entering the clean drinking water system and prevent backflow incidents. This same Code requires Silver Lake Water & Sewer District maintain a backflow prevention program, in which we send out annual reminder letters to customers with Backflow Prevention Devices when their device's annual test is due. What Are Your Responsibilities? If you have irrigation, fire sprinkler or other water-using systems, you will need to: Have a Backflow Prevention Device installed at the connection between your systems and the District's public water system; Have a state certified Backflow Assembly Test performed annually (see a link to a list of certified testers below); and The tester is required to send in your test report using our online portal: Tokay WebTest Portal .
