Water Main Break Impacts M Street Businesses

A six-inch service line is broken on M Street between Wisconsin Avenue and 31st Street.

DC Water crews are repairing a broken six-inch service line on the 3100 block of M Street in Georgetown.

Pamela Mooring, a spokesperson for DC Water, told Patch that the work is taking place on the north side of the street and that some 10 businesses including restaurants were impacted by outages.

Employees at both s and confirmed that they were closed because of the outage. 

Mooring told Patch that because the break was in a service line rather than a larger water main, the work should not block traffic or require any street closures.

Work began around 1 p.m. and could last until 9 p.m. according to DC Alerts.

Too bad... I'm on 25th and M and don't have water and was just thinking of heading over to Ben and Jerry's to spend the rest of the afternoon there :(

Akshay, the water main break happened in July. Ben & Jerry's is open now that it's September. Get some ice cream!
