$500 water restriction fine issued

By Washington Post Editors

Police have issued one $500 citation and 180 warnings for failing to adhere to mandatory water restrictions in Prince George's and Montgomery counties.

The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission is aiming to cut water use by a third while it repairs a failing section in an 8-foot water main in Potomac. On Saturday, usage was down just 14 percent.

Contractors installed a new section of pipe overnight, and WSCC says the repairs are on schedule.

Until the repairs are complete, WSCC says all business and residential customers must refrain from using water outside and should limit toilet flushing and the use of dishwashers and washing machines.
