Water main break on Wooton Parkway

The fickle temperatures this week are getting the water mains riled up again. One broke in the 2100 block of Wooton Parkway yesterday, causing a temporary closure of one lane. Rockville's Department of Public Works says no customers were effected by the break. Light snow is forecast for Friday, so this may not be end of the water main issues for the winter, even as spring arrives.

A water main break will keep Watts Branch Parkway closed between Hurley Avenue and Ingleside Court for up to several days. No customers are without water at this time, says the City of Rockville Public Works Department, which is currently repairing the break. Running cold water will help flush any discoloration of water away, they say. Should air become trapped in your pipes, they suggest slowly turning on all faucets in your home, starting on the highest floor and working downward.
