Emergency Water Main Repair - Accokeek
OFFICE OF COMMUNICATIONS AND COMMUNITY RELATIONS
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Laurel, MD - January 14, 2019: WSSC is making emergency repairs to a 16-inch water main at 3006 Danville Road, Accokeek.
Affected streets include:
- Wheel Wright Pl.
- Hardy Tavern Dr.
- St Mary’s View Rd.
- Wendells Ln.
- Lusby Ridge Rd.
- Kenlon Ln.
- Danville Rd.
- Devinger Pl.
- Claggett Run Rd.
- Stroh Ct.
Customers in this area will lose water service while the water main is fixed. A water station has been set up in the parking lot of St. Mary’s School of Piscataway, 13407 Piscataway Rd., Clinton.
Repairs will be made as quickly as possible.
ACCOKEEK UPDATE: This is not a typical water main break. Last night a car ran into a fire hydrant, which broke the water main and a valve connected to the hydrant. The pressure on a hydrant valve is significant and requires much more caution and care to fix.
We thank you for your patience and apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you for being a valued customer.
