Water Quality / Wastewater Treatment Plant
The southern half of Marysville is served by water purchased from the City of Everett. Many of you may have noticed an odd taste and odor in this water. This is due to algae that occurs naturally in the reservoir. The algae is beginning to die off, but Everett expects this issue to last for another couple of weeks. This is the June 29 update from the City of Everett:

"Water systems should expect that the intensity of the taste and odor may continue for the next couple of weeks and that the arrival of water with taste and/or odor issues will vary considerably due to the highly variable water age and flow conditions found in the various distribution storage and piping systems. Depending upon location, water may take anywhere from a few hours to as much as 10 days to arrive from the treatment plant. This means some locations will take another two weeks for the poor tasting water to pass."

Wastewater Treatment Plant Division
The Public Works Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) Division is responsible for protecting the environment by ensuring that wastewater is properly collected from residential and commercial customers and treated prior to discharge. All water and wastewater meets or exceeds the State of Washington standards, as set by the Department of Ecology.

Collection System
The city's sanitary sewer collection system consists of 227 miles of sewer lines. They are cleaned annually by the city’s stormwater crew. The WWTP and 14 sewer lift stations are operated and maintained by the wastewater division. Operators at the treatment plant perform sampling and testing of 6 million gallons a day of effluent assuring compliance with the city’s discharge permit issued by the Department of Ecology.

Water Quality Division
The Water Quality Division is responsible for water quality sampling and testing per state Department of Health requirements. The division also produces an annual water quality report. This division's programs include the water conservation program, consumer confidence reports, and hydrant and water fill station use.
