Russett Water Main Break
Annapolis, Maryland (July 3, 2015) - Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works contractors continue work to repair a broken water main in Russett and restore water service to customers in the 20724 zip code. The water service interruption is expected to last until approximately 7 p.m.
The 20-inch water main break occurred early this morning in three 20 foot segments and was caused by erosion along the Little Patuxent River bank. The erosion washed away the protective soils around the pipe and exposed it to damage.
Water fill stations are located in the most convenient area with available water access. The stations will remain in operation at the following locations:
- 7807 Brock Bridge Road
Jessup , Maryland 20794
- Home Depot
210 Fort Meade Road
Laurel, Maryland 20724
- The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC), a neighboring utility, assisted DPW and Anne Arundel County residents by allowing access to their water supply near the Home Depot location.
