OXON HILL, Md. (AP) — Several southern Prince George’s County communities — including Joint Base Andrews and National Harbor — are being urged to stock up on water ahead of a pipeline repair will leave them without water for days just as blistering summer temperatures hit the region.

The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission says mandatory water restrictions for tens of thousands of customers begin at 9 p.m. Tuesday. WSSC says the restrictions will be in place to preserve firefighting capabilities. With the restrictions officials say there’s enough water to last 12 to 15 hours after water is shut off for repairs, but the area could be without water for three to five days.

The affected communities also include Morningside, Hillcrest Heights, Camp Springs, Forest Heights, Temple Hills and Oxon Hill.
