$500 fine for violating water restrictions

By Washington Post editors

The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission warns that those violating the mandatory water restrictions it has implemented could face a fine of up to $500.

WSSC implemented the restrictions for all its customers after an inspection found a failing 96-inch water main. The restrictions take effect immediately and are expected to last at least four days.

Authorities have warned residents to:

  • Stop all outside water use – no watering lawns, no washing cars, no topping off swimming pools
  • Use water only as necessary
  • Limit flushing toilets (do not flush after every use)
  • Limit using washing machines and dishwashers (wash full loads only)
