With 100,000 residents of Prince George's County set to go without water for the next few days as a 54-inch water main is repaired, officials have set up a number of water distribution sites, reception centers and cooling centers for affected residents.
The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission is providing water to residents in the affected areas and the County has set-up three distribution points in the affected areas. Residents will be limited to 2 gallons per person. The distribution points will open from 12-9:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 17 and from 8:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m. until the water outage is over. Residents must bring their own containers.
