Water Shutoffs Loom for Nearly 100K Delinquent Maryland Customers

WSSC Water is set to suspend service for roughly 92,000 Maryland customers as a result of $66 million in past due accounts.

Officials with WSSC Water said shutoffs will restart Monday for the first time since the outset of the coronavirus pandemic in March 2020, WUSA-TV (Channel 9) reported.

The $66 million in unpaid bills was the main reason the turnoffs will resume, with company officials saying money is needed to provide safe cleaning water for its customers and to continue to maintain operations.

Customers who have finished payment plans will have their late fees waived, officials said. People enrolled in the Customer Assistance Program will have their late fees waived permanently, WUSA reported.

WSSSC Water said customers who are in arrears can establish a payment plan.

Elsewhere in the region, Fairfax Water also resumed turnoffs Tuesday, WUSA reported. DC Water hasn’t yet followed suit, but did resume late fees on Sept. 1.
