BALTIMORE (WJZ) — After an extensive outage, water service has been restored to residents of Poe Homes, according to the Housing Authority of Baltimore City.

HABC said that it installed 287 toilets in 24 hours and that all occupied units have running water and showers.

The Housing Authority also said that water pressure has been returned to normal and that residents can continue to call the management office if need be.


The initial outage stemmed from a broken 20″ valve.

Baltimore City Public Works had to shut down 32 valves to isolate a break, which cut off services for 1,000 people.
