BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Water has been restored to Poe Homes on West Lexington Street using a workaround, according to the Department of Public Works.

The DPW said that it is currently working on restoring water to Poe Homes on Saratoga Street using a workout around.

Officials said that because the infrastructure that they are working to repair is so old, a workaround will be in place until the infrastructure is replaced, which could be months.

Residents of the west Baltimore neighborhood are on their sixth day with limited or no water.
