Water District No 49 is responsible for over 59 miles of water mains and over 4,100 service connections. We are responsible for pipes and connections up to and including all water meters. Every customer is responsible for his or her service line connections from the customer's side of the water meter into, and within, the property.

In case of an emergency, like a broken pipe inside the home, all customers should know the location of the water shutoff valve inside their house. If you need the water turned off at the meter, call 206-242-8535 24 hours a day. The District will send a maintenance technician to shut off the water at the meter. Please be advised that if the meter is tampered with or broken, you will be charged a $100 tamper fee plus time, materials and permitting for the repair.
