Prepping paranoid? WATER CUT FOR 150,000+ NEAR DC

WASHINGTON - Life over the next three to five days will be one where southern Prince George's County residents will have to adjust to no water.

More than 150,000 Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission customers are affected, but the impact is much greater since a customer may be an individual home or business.

"This is an unprecedented situation in terms of the scope and size," said Scott Petersen, a spokesman for Prince George's County Executive Rushern Baker, on WTOP.

"It is the equivalent of a natural disaster hitting the county," said Petersen.

Residents and businesses are urged to conserve water as the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission repairs a 54-inch water line, a huge project in a remote area.

Mandatory water restrictions went into effect at 9 p.m. Tuesday.

Three hours later, WSSC shut down the affected water main. Water inside the main is expected to last customers 12 to 15 hours.

"The water will last 12 to 15 hours. That clock started around midnight," said Lyn Riggins, WSSC spokeswoman, Wednesday morning.

WSSC has been urging people to stock up on water and conserve what water they use. The more people conserve, the longer they'll be able to get water from the shut- down main.

When the water in the main runs out, repairs to the massive water main begin.

"We're going to work as quickly as possible," Riggins said.

But it will take "three to five days" before the water comes back on, she said.

In an effort to help, Prince George's County has several locations set up for people to get water, to take showers and to cool off.

Yup, preparing isn't about being ready for the end of the world. It's about having what you need when services are cut off for whatever reason.

No need to prep. The government will take care of us.


On an unrelated note, I will be selling bottled water for "concert" prices. Please message me for details.

I hope there aren't any major fires in that area. Confused

Prepping is 'not' being paranoid.

I lose power weekly. Generally for a few minutes,
but enough to stop relying on anything electric.
Losing power for hours monthly in normal.

Start the genorator and I don't care how long it takes them.
As for water and food, I would guess 3 months with no problem.

Its not being paranoid, its being confortable.

Even in the sticks people are dependent on all forms of government and services. Can't get through the most minor of inconveniences without complaining.

You wouldn't be able to run as many people over with that car if it didn't drive as far. It should only have a 10 gallon fuel tank.

If the town is out of water, where is Starbucks going to get the water to make coffee?

Pretty sure you won't find a Starbucks within 100 miles.
