From the D.C. Water and Sewer Authority:

The District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority (D.C. WASA) has canceled the advisory from this morning for some neighborhoods in Northwest to not use the water. The advisory has been lifted for all neighborhoods in the affected area.

As an added precaution, D.C. WASA recommends discarding any food or ice that was prepared with water between 5:00 am am and 2:30 pm today. This includes infant formula. In addition, any faucets or taps that have not been used during the water advisory should be flushed for 10 minutes.
