A D.C. lawmaker is calling on the city to establish an emergency relief fund for residents of the Bloomingdale neighborhood reeling from flood damage after fierce rains backed up their outdated sewer once again during the Labor Day weekend.
In the "highly unlikely" event that residents lose water pressure — the pumping stations have backup power — D.C. residents should save water in pitchers and fill their tubs with water so they could use it to flush their toilets, Mr. Hawkins said.
George Hawkins, general manager of D.C. Water, says he doubts there will be a drop in water pressure but gave people instructions to save bottled water just in case.
