Update on Silver Lake sewer line break

It took 24 hours, but the City of Everett workers completed the 20-inch sewer line repair at about 7:00 AM this morning according to Marci Chew of the City of Mill Creek Surface Water Utility.

The City of Everett is warning people to avoid contact with North Creek south of Silver Lake. They have posted warning signs in some areas along the creek.

"The City of Everett will be conducting daily stream monitoring in North Creek behind Fish and Wildlife (in Mill Creek) for fecal coliform, dissolved Oxygen, and Ph," said Chew. "This monitoring will also be done this weekend and it will continue until the fecal coliform levels are safe in the stream."

 If anyone notices fish kills in North Creek, please contact Marci Chew at 425-745-1891, or email her at
