It's not just regular businesses that have to worry about water outages — hospitals have protocols in place to ensure they're ready for water emergencies.
While the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission announced that residents of Prince George's County won't lose water while a pipe is being fixed, Prince George's Hospital spokesman Mark Arsenault says there's always a plan.
"We at Prince George's Hospital in particular have a 150,000 gallon water tank on site, and when we lose water that's the first thing we would use is the 150,000 gallon resource."
Other hospitals have 10,000-20,000 gallon water containers to make sure there's plenty of water.
As for the water restrictions? Arsenault says business as usual, but the hospital won't be watering outside plants.
