Sammamish Plateau Water and Sewer District officials said power has been restored and district facilities returned to normal functions.
The request for customers to conserve water is no longer in effect. Customers can use water and sewer facilities as normal.
The district encompasses North Issaquah neighborhoods, including Providence Point, and Klahanie in unincorporated King County. Overall, the district serves 16,300 water customers and 10,100 sewer customers.
Officials said some areas in the district service area remain without power. Customers without power and on a sewer grinder pump system should continue to minimize water and toilet use until the power is restored.
The winter storm interrupted operation to 11 district water facilities and 15 sewer lift stations. The district kept facilities operating through the use of backup generators, but the loss of power and communication posed challenges for the continuity of operations.
