Don't Drink the Water: DC Warns Thousands of Contamination Risk
NBC Washington ^ | July 13, 2018 | Andrea Swalec

If you live in D.C., you may have to boil your water.

DC Water is advising tens of thousands of residents and businesses in a major portion of the city not to drink or cook with tap water without boiling it because of a contamination risk.

A problem with the water system Thursday night made it "possible for contaminants to enter the water," DC Water said in a statement early Friday. Officials say there is no information indicating that any water was contaminated; the "boil water advisory" is a precaution. DC Water says it is safe to bathe or shower, but to avoid swallowing the water.

The advisory is expected to last 24-48 hours, the utility said just after 9 a.m. Friday.

An estimated 34,000 DC Water customers are affected, spokesman Vince Morris said. The total number of people affected is likely much higher; residents of an entire apartment complex can be counted as a single customer.

Another big city run by the Democrat Party, yes?

It's the “effluent” from the Strozk hearings that “leaked” into the city's water system.

DC like so many left wing controlled big cities in America, continues to be an American $hithole.

Don’t drink the water until it gets another treatment of mind control drugs.

Let’s see, we have “swamp”, “Strozk” and “the Dems run it” already. So I’ll just have to say the Russians did it.

Maybe we need the fence around DC with an airtight lid? That would do more good than a southern fence.

“Maybe we need the fence around DC with an airtight lid? “

Is that to keep the stink in, OR to ensure a Total Start-over in DC ??

Rather than boil my water I’ll just fill up my water bottles from the anacostia.

I believe its still the army corps of engineers that run the aqueduct/water in DC. I used to live in DC... water bill is very cheap there.
