No, the City/Utility does not pay for customers to stay in a hotel/rental property when service off a water transmission line is interrupted for maintenance purposes. We are giving people adequate notice to make preparation. By nature of being connected to the transmission line, you have agreed to interruptible service.
Everett Municipal Code 14.60.460 states that the City is not responsible for the water storage needs of customers outside the city limits. Service interruptions are to be expected when connected directly to water transmission lines. Everett encourages all customers connected to our transmission lines to seek connection to a water distribution system near them that has storage capabilities.
