LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission is providing water to Prince George’s County residents impacted by emergency repairs to 54-inch water main. As many as 200,000 customers will be without running water while crews work to replace the failing critical pipe.

WSSC says residents will be limited to 2 gallons per person. Residents must bring their own containers to fill.

The Pablo Show will broadcast live at the Safeway in Rivertowne handing out water until the problem is fixed. Bring ID if you reside in one of the affected areas.
