Thank you for visiting King County Water District No.49's website. We are located at 415 S.W. 153rd Street in Burien. This district provides services to more than 16,000 residential and commercial users in parts of Burien and northern Normandy Park. King County Water District No.49 has eight employees and three commissioners govern the district.

The water this district provides is supplied from the Cedar River Watershed. The Cedar River Watershed is located in a remote, uninhabited area of the Cascade Mountains and is managed by the City of Seattle. The city also maintains large transmission pipelines which convey the water from the watershed to our area. The District’s distribution system is connected to these pipelines by four separate taps on large transmission mains.

King County Water District No.49 is pleased to provide you with our 2013 Water Quality Report. To receive a hard copy of this report, please contact us by phone or stop by and see us. To view this report, click on the link below.
