City Responds to Sewer Main Break

Sewer Response

Update: As of 3:10, the pipe is repaired along the 200 block of Madison Ave S. Crews will now work on street repairs for 1-2 hours.

Update: As of 2:30 p.m., Madison Ave S, from Bjune Dr to Parfitt Way, will be closed for several hours while crews make repairs.

The City estimates the total volume of discharge was 10,000 gallons or less. The sewage was contained to the vacant lot in the 200 block of Madison Ave S and appears it did not reach the stormwater system or Eagle Harbor.


At approximately 11:45 a.m. Friday, Dec. 21, a contractor installing underground cable in the 200 block of Madison Avenue S hit the City's sewer force main causing a sewer spill on Madison Ave S. Public Works crews were dispatched and are currently on scene. 

The sewer force main is a pressurized portion of the sewer conveyance system that ultimately transmits sewage to the wastewater treatment plant.

Kitsap County Public Works will be providing assistance.

The Kitsap Public Health District has been notified.

People in the surrounding area are advised to limit their water usage during the repairs.

At this time, it is anticipated that the repairs will be made this afternoon with no break in service; however, if unforeseen conditions arise the public will be notified.
