Power outage in Everett results in 40,000-gallon sewage spill

A power outage this morning at a sewer lift station in Everett caused about 40,000 gallons of sewage to be released into Port Gardner Bay, according to My Everett News, a Seattle Times news partner.

The power went out at 8:50 a.m. and was restored at 9:30 a.m., My Everett News reported.

Signs were posted at Howarth Park and Pigeon Creek beaches, warning people to stay out of the water until water-quality tests indicate it’s safe to go in.
