Water Supply

Everett’s drinking water comes from Spada Reservoir, located about 30 miles east of Everett at the headwaters of the Sultan River in the Upper Sultan River Watershed, an area encompassing more than 80 square miles. This 50-billion-gallon storage facility serves as a collection point for rain and snowmelt from the Cascade Mountains. Water quality in the Sultan Basin is carefully monitored. To protect the naturally pristine water in Spada Reservoir, the watershed is patrolled, and human activities are limited to minimize the impact on water quality.
