Northeast Sammamish Water & Sewer District is the first utility in the Pacific Northwest to install operational technology that links with the Shake Alert earthquake early warning system and automatically prompts a system response to protect the local water supply in case of a natural disaster.

In the case of a seismic event, protecting our fresh drinking water supply is essential. The Shake Alert system has been developed in conjunction with the U.S. Geological Survey and the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network along with the University of Washington. The District is among the very first utilities in the region to test and install the safety measures as part of a U.S. Geological Survey pilot program.

A seismic event will be simulated and the implementation of this cutting-edge technology will be demonstrated. Specialists will also be available for further information and interviews.
