LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission is providing water to Prince George’s County residents impacted by emergency repairs to 54-inch water main. As many as 200,000 customers will be without running water while crews work to replace the failing critical pipe.

WSSC says residents will be limited to 2 gallons per person. Residents must bring their own containers to fill.
