The National Harbor may be much quieter as a result of water restrictions.

Maryland's National Harbor is among the areas affected by mandatory water restrictions set to go into effect tonight in Southern Prince George's County.

When he checked into the Gaylord National Hotel, Phillip Racies wasn't expecting to have to leave the area so soo, and didn't appreciate the short notice.

"It's hard to believe that there wasn't a little more advanced notice to work this out logisitically a little better."

Racies came to National Harbor for a conference and now finds himself needing to find a new place to stay.

"I've been spending the last couple hours in my room on the websites trying to find a nearby hotel that works to allow me to come back to a conference."

Racies is just one of the thousands affected by the water shut down. Baja Fresh Manager Darrell Evans says his restaurant may have to close.

"We won't be able to serve as many customers because we won't have fuel for the restaurant which is basically to use the bathroom, to wash our hands to cook," Evans says.

The mandatory water shut down starts at 9 p.m. tonight and some places won't have water for days.
