DC Water spokesperson Vincent Morris said they received reports of a drop in water pressure affecting customers in the Foxhall and Brookland neighborhoods.
"DC Water crews/contractors are currently investigating a possible water emergency affecting several neighborhoods in Northwest and Northeast Washington, DC," DC Water said on its website. "Many customers in the area are experiencing low to no water pressure. We will provide more information as it becomes available."
According to Morris, DC Water has corrected the problem and customers should see their water pressure return to normal.
Water pressure is restored- every customer (in 2nd zone, center of DC Foxhall to Brookland) should notice improvements immediately, continuing until full pressure restored ~ thx for patience 👌🏼💦 @dcwater is life !— Vincent Morris (@VincentMorris) July 13, 2018
Thankfully @dcwater water pressure drop was very brief ~ all impacted customers should be at full pressure now , up from low of 40 psi during the drop - thank you for patience 💦💦💪— Vincent Morris (@VincentMorris) July 13, 2018
DC Water said the problem was caused due to an issue at its Bryant Street pumping station.
