Phinney Ridge Community Council seeks input on side sewers for annual meeting

March 1st, 2011 · Comments

The Phinney Ridge Community Council will hold its annual meeting on May 3, and it’s inviting city representatives to discuss side sewers and other sewer and water issues in the neighborhhood.

PRCC is hosting an informational program about the City of Seattle’s rules and recommendations on side sewer replacement. In nearly all cases, side sewer maintenance, repairs and replacement are the property owners’ responsibility, not the city’s. Some of the side sewers serving Phinney Ridge homes and businesses are 100 years old. Replacing a failed side sewer costs many thousands of dollars.

The council is seeking input from Phinney Ridge residents on these questions:

1. What experiences, good or bad, have you had with city departments or private contractors when you have replaced a side sewer or researched doing so?

2. What experiences, good or bad, have you had with city departments or private contractors with drinking water service including quality, taste or water pressure?

You can find more information from the city on side sewers here.

The PRCC also will elect its new board of directors at the May 3 meeting. The May 3 meeting is at 7:30 p.m. at the Phinney Neighborhood Center, 6532 Phinney Ave. N.
