Upper Marlboro Customers May Experience Water Pressure Changes This Weekend

Upper Marlboro Customers May Experience Water Pressure Changes This Weekend

Laurel, MD – March 6, 2018: – (RealEstateRama) — WSSC is replacing a large water main on Leeland Road. Customers may experience lower than normal water pressure beginning Saturday, March 10, 2018, at 9:00 pm until Sunday, March 11, 2018, at 5:00 am.


We will make every effort to avoid a complete loss of water service, however, we will be establishing a water station, starting at 7:00 pm, which will be located at the Beechtree Community Center, 15511 Beech Tree Parkway, Upper Marlboro, MD 20774.

Helpful tips for this temporary loss of water pressure:


  • Consider storing water in advance for short-term use.
    • Drinking water – clean glass or plastic containers.
    • Other purposes – sinks, bathtubs, laundry tubs, coolers or pots, and pans.
    • Make sure large containers of water are not accessible to children.


  • Do not wash clothes during this time as they may become stained.
    • If you experience stained clothing as a result of this event, contact the Communications Office at 301-206-8100 or by email at "> to request Rit Rust Remover free of charge


  • When water pressure is fully restored, you may experience discolored water or have air trapped in your water lines. See flushing video to the right.
