WSSC WILL NOT SHUT OFF WATER, CHARGE LATE FEES DURING CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK
During the “evolving coronavirus outbreak,” Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission will not shut off any water service for those with financial difficulties, it announced Thursday.
According to a WSSC news release, the commission wants to make sure “safe, clean water continues to flow to customers home.”
Late fees will be waived for customers impacted by the coronavirus, WSSC added.
The utility also is cancelling or postponing all in-home, non-emergency work, including plumbing inspections and meter readings. This policy is expected to be reassessed weekly.
WSSC public meetings are postponed for the next 30 days.
