An advisory this morning for some Washington residents to boil their water is still unfolding: D.C. Water tweeted out this a.m. that there was a pressure loss at a pump station yesterday and residents in affected areas of Northwest and Northeast should boil their water as a precaution.
Now, the Post reports that the advisory’s been scaled back and D.C. Water just tweeted out a map so residents and businesses can type in their addresses and see if their water’s been affected. The affected area is in blue.
UPDATE 7/13 12:15 pm (Corrected date) We now have an interactive map for the boil water alert. Customers can enter their address to see if they are in the impacted area: https://t.co/5w83atZso5— DC Water (@dcwater) July 13, 2018
