Getting WSSC News and Alerts
Katharine Shaver's story in The Post's May 7 edition examines the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission, the utility that delivers water to Montgomery and Prince George's counties and the condition of its pipe systems.
Main breaks are not uncommon in area water systems, but sometimes they go beyond what might be called routine -- as in the case, for example, of the December break in Montgomery County that required the dramatic rescue of several commuters.
The Laurel-based WSSC offers several ways for residents to inform themselves -- and the WSSC itself -- about service issues in their communities.
Emergencies can be reported by telephone to (301) 206-4002 or via e-mail to EmergencyCallCenter@wsscwater.com.
A map of current service advisories, which tracks water main breaks, sewer issues and other problems, is available online.
Finally, users can register online to receive service-related (and other) alerts via e-mail and text message.
Do you use any of these services? Let us know your experience with them in the comments section of this post below.
