WASA Cancels Boil Water Order

The District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority says it’s now safe to drink the water. WASA called off the boil water advisory for the Shepherd Park neighborhood today, after testing showed the tap water is now safe to drink. Residents were warned that they should boil their water as a precaution against contamination on Monday, after a drop in water pressure caused taps to run dry in some parts of the city.
