After five minutes, turn off your faucets in reverse order, from lowest to highest. You should also flush your refrigerator’s water lines.
Flushing your water lines lowers the risk of potential contamination that is created whenever a water main is depressurized because of a break. This is particularly important for people who have special health concerns because their immunity is compromised.
If you still experience problems after performing the above procedures, or if you have any questions, please contact our Customer Emergency Call Center 24 hours a day, seven days a week at: (301) 206-4002, 1-800-828-6439 or TTY (301)-206-8345.
