LAUREL, Md. (WUSA) - The mandatory water restriction issued by The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission has been lifted for all WSSC customers.

The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission asks that if you experienced low pressure or discolored water during restrictions to follow the below steps.

• Flush the cold water lines in your home or business for five minutes.
• If you have a single-lever faucet, set it to run the cold water.
• Flush your refrigerator's water lines for five minutes.
• Make sure the water in your washing machine is running clear before you wash clothes.Doing laundry with discolored water can stain clothes.

If you did not experience low pressure or discolored water, then you can resume using water regularly without flushing.

The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission says power has been restored to almost all pumping stations and the distribution system has returned to normal levels after Friday's storm.

If you still experience problems or if you have any questions, call the Emergency Call Center 24 hours a day at (301)-206-4002, 1-800-828-6439 or (301)-206-8345.
