Water Main Break Causes Discolored Water for Village Residents Located West of Connecticut Avenue

As of 10:30 this morning, the Village has received approximately half a dozen calls from Village residents reporting discolored water. All of the calls have been received from residents located west of Connecticut Avenue.  WSSC reports that the discolored water has been caused by a water main break outside of the Village.  Repair crews are on site at the location of the break, and the water main is expected to be fixed within the next 4-6 hours. 
As a reminder, please DO NOT run your washing machine if you have discolored water. Laundry could become stained. If this happens, immediately wash the clothes again using a rust remover product. This type of product is available in most supermarkets or WSSC will send you rust remover.
