Nearly 100 customers without water during WSSC repairs

WASHINGTON – Some Bethesda residents are without water service after a water main break Friday along Wilson Lane.

Water was turned off around 11 a.m. for 91 customers, according to Lyn Riggins with WSSC. Crews worked through the night, and had to turn off the water to fix the break on Wilson Lane.

Riggins told WTOP earlier that it took more time than usual to pinpoint the water main break due to icy conditions. Crews used metal detectors to track down the source of the problem.

WTOP’s Kathy Stewart reports Wilson Lane is closed north of River Road. At this time, there is no word on how long it will take to repair the break.
