According to Diane Pottinger, District Manager of North City Water, there was a water main break Wednesday on NE 155th Street between 5th and 6th Ave NE.

Water was running down 155th.

North City Water was notified about it at 8:07 am on Wednesday, January 11. Crews were dispatched immediately and discovered that a 6" cast iron pipe had cracked.

Crews located and repaired the break the same day.

The City of Shoreline salted the intersection of 5th Ave NE and NE 155th Street  several times throughout the day to reduce ice formation.

Pottinger explains, "The cold weather fluctuations we have been experiencing are likely the cause of this break."
