Waterless in Baltimore County after main break

By Washington Post editors

Officials say 40,000 Baltimore County customers are still without water and 11 county schools are closed after a main break over the weekend.

The break early Saturday affected an area with about 100,000 homes and businesses along the Reisterstown Road corridor in northwestern Baltimore County. Eleven schools in the affected area are closed Monday.

Baltimore County is providing water at the Reisterstown Sportsplex from noon to 9 p.m. Monday. Residents must bring their own containers.

Kurt Kocher, a spokesman for Baltimore’s Department of Public Works, says residents who still have water can help by conserving water use to allow crews to more quickly fill tanks serving the area.
