“Boil Water Advisory Continues for Customers in Upper Northwest D.C., west of Rock Creek Park”


Starbucks, Wisconsin Ave, Cathedral Heights. Thanks to Eric for sending.

From DC Water:

“The District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority (DC Water) continues to advise customers to not drink or cook with their water without boiling it first if they are in the defined impact area.

Customers should visit the interactive map at dcwater.com or call the 24-Hour Command Center at (202) 612-3400 to determine if they are in the current impact area.

Customers not located in the impacted area do not need to boil water and can continue normal water use.

Customers in the impact area should:

  • Discard any beverages and ice made 8 hours before and during this advisory.
  • Run cold water until clear (if discolored) prior to boiling.
  • Run cold water for 2 minutes if known sources of lead are present prior to boiling.
  • Bring water to a rolling boil for 1 minute and let it cool.
  • Store cooled water in a clean, covered container.

Cooled, boiled water or bottled water should be used for:

  • Drinking
  • Brushing teeth
  • Preparing and cooking food
  • Washing fruits and vegetables
  • Preparing infant formula
  • Making ice
  • Giving water to pets

*Do not use home filtering devices in place of boiled or bottled water.

The first round of water sampling did not identify any contamination. Our Water Quality staff will collect the second round of water samples today. We anticipate receiving the second round of sampling test results from the laboratory tomorrow. We will lift the advisory after two rounds of “all clear” test results–anticipated Sunday, November 10, 2019.

Questions regarding the water main break can be directed to Arlington Water. DC Water customers with water quality questions should contact the Department of Water Quality at (202) 612-3440 (Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.). All other questions should be directed to DC Water Customer Service at (202) 354-3600 (Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.), the 24-Hour Command Center at 202-612-3400 or the Office of Marketing and Communications at (202) 787-2200 (Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.).”
