Learn About Planned Water Outages

Planned water outages may occur when Tacoma Water crews need to conduct maintenance or repairs on our water mains or when there is new construction to an area. Before water service is restored after a planned outage, our teams fill and flush the area and test and treat the water to ensure the water you receive continues to be clean and reliable.

After a planned water outage, we recommend waiting a few hours before running your water. If you have waited a few hours and water is still coming out discolored, please run cold water in a bathtub with no aerators.
