City offers free bottled water to East North Avenue

In order to help the estimate 300 people still without water in the East North Avenue corridor, the Baltimore City Department of Public Works has opened four stations to provide free bottled water for residents to help stay hydrated.

According to a press release, Public Works Director Alfred H. Foxx said the four stations — located at the Oliver Recreation Center, Lanvale Towers, the intersection of Belair Road and North Avenue, and 1401 E. Oliver St. — are open to all of those affected, but residents must bring either a valid Baltimore I.D. or a bill to prove they live between Belair Road and Aisquith Street.

The area has been without water since DPW crews noticed a glitch in the system last night and had to shut off the water to prevent a potential 20-inch water main failure. It could be several more hours before water will be restored.
