16 Jul Alert! Don’t Drink the Water in Washington D.C.!
Breaking: Thousands Of People Possibly Affected By Contaminated Water In Washington, D.C.
The Washington Post reports around 8:30 p.m. Thursday night, an open valve at the Bryant Street pumping station, which is near Howard University, “caused a loss of pressure in parts of the distribution system for about an hour.” The open valve made it possible for contaminants to enter the water.
Reportedly, the water is safe to shower and bathe in, but even water for a coffee maker should be boiled. Everyone in Washington, D.C., be safe—and if there are any issues or concerns about your health, contact a medical health professional.
