Water Main Break Affects 3,000 Workers In Baltimore County

BALTIMORE (AP) — Employees of the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in Baltimore County were told not to report to work after a water main break left their offices without water.

The Baltimore Sun reports about 3,000 workers were told not to come to work Tuesday to give crews time to repair a 16-inch water main break. The main ruptured Monday night. Water service was turned off in the area so that repair work could begin.

A spokesman for the city public works department, Kurt Kocher, said Tuesday afternoon that water service was being restored to about 1,000 customers.
