50,000 gallons of raw sewage spill into Port Gardner

An estimated 50,000 gallons of raw sewage spilled into Port Gardner Bay early this morning.

Power surges near a lift station at Pigeon Creek around 3 a.m. caused the station to stop pumping sewage for about one hour. City crews were able to return the station to normal operation at approximately 4 a.m.

City staff are taking water quality samples in the area and posting signs to inform people in the area of the recent spill. The city has made the necessary notifications to Ecology, Snohomish County Health and State Department of Health.
