Water main break may affect residents

October 17, 2003

A break in a Baltimore water main that provides drinking water to parts of northern Anne Arundel County, including Linthicum and Brooklyn, could result in a temporary decrease in water pressure and brief water discoloration, according to the Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works.

The water main break occurred yesterday in the 3600 block of Washington Blvd. in Baltimore, said Pam Jordan, spokeswoman for the Anne Arundel Public Works Department. Baltimore officials are evaluating the break and planning repairs, she said.

Water from other parts of the county will be directed to affected neighborhoods. At first, some residents might notice discoloration, which is normal and shouldn't last long. Residents who experience discolored water for more than an hour should call the county's Utilities Emergency Services office at 410-222-8400.
