LAUREL, Md. (AP) — Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission says mandatory water restrictions remain in place for all customers in Montgomery and Prince George’s counties.
Power has been restored to water filtration plants, but moving water through the system remains challenging.
WSSC’s water is safe to drink, but the utility needs to produce and distribute enough water for a hot day and have reserves for fire hydrants.
Customers must stop all outside water use; take shorter showers; limit flushing toilets, postpone using washing machines and dishwashers.
WSSC will re-evaluate the restrictions the middle of the day Sunday.
