Parts of Bowie under a Water Restriction

A mandatory water restriction was put in place today for all WSSC water customers in Prince George's and Montgomery counties while WSSC performs emergency repairs on a 96 inch water main. Customers are being asked to follow these guidelines.

  • Stop all outside water use --no watering lawns, no washing cars, no topping off swimming pools
  • Use water only as necessary
  • Limit flushing toilets (do not flush after every use)
  • Limit using washing machines and dishwashers (wash full loads only)

The restriction affects only portions of Bowie. City of Bowie water customers are not affected. According to a City of Bowie Web posting, the following neighborhoods are not subject to the water restriction:

  • Bowie Forest
