WASHINGTON (AP) — Washington's Water and Sewer Authority is advising that residents who are having low water pressure boil water for drinking and cooking.
DC Water said Wednesday evening that the Fort Reno Pumping Station experienced a power outage. Crews are working to restore power to and will flush the system with chlorinated water to disinfect pipes once service is restored.
