ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Anne Arundel County residents who can’t get water from their wells because of power outages can fill water bottles at the Broadcreek Water Treatment plant.

The county Department of Public Works has opened a potable water filling station at the plant in Annapolis. People should bring their own containers. The station will remain open until 7:30 p.m. Saturday.

County water supplies remain safe to drink.

Residents should continue to limit indoor water use and not use water outdoors for the next 48 hours. The county says that will allow water reserves to reach normal levels.
