Update as of 12:40 p.m. — The boundaries have been reduced to the following :
- West Boundary: Western Avenue, NW
- North Boundary: River Road, NW
- East Boundary: Connecticut Avenue, NW
- South Boundary Nebraska Avenue, NW
Original post as of 11:11 a.m. – Northwest Washington needs to watch what they drink today. According to WTOP, residents in parts of NW are being advised not to drink water from the tap due to a higher-than-normal chlorine concentration.
Officials from the D.C. Water and Sewer Authority (WASA) say that the sudden rise in chlorine levels occurred at its unmanned Fort Reno facility early Tuesday while it was offline for routine maintenance disinfection.
So prompt those taste buds and make use of your sense of smell if you live in NW, there’s no use in crying over dirty water if you’re on the look out for it.
See the page jump for a listing of boundaries issued by WASA for your safety.
- West Boundary: MacArthur Boulevard, NW
- North Boundary: Western Avenue and Eastern Avenue, NW
- East Boundary: Amtrak railroad
- South Boundary (east side of Rock Creek): Upshur Street, NW
- South Boundary (west side of Rock Creek): Calvert Street to Observatory Circle to W Street.
