Some Washington Suburban Sanitation Commission customers in Prince George's County could be seeing brownish tap water.

A water main break in Prince George's County could be affecting some homes in the Beltsville and Laurel areas of the county. The Washington Suburban Sanitation Commission says customers who are affected could see brownish water flowing from their taps.

WSSC officials say the water is not harmful to drink, however, it could taste a little different than normal. They're warning residents not to use the water for baby formula or to wash clothing. Using the water for drinking and showering are fine.

The break happened east of Interstate 95 at the intersection of Virginia Manor Road and Van Dusen. The problem is expected to continue through the day.
