Electric toothbrush chargers and electric dryers have been in the spotlight after reports of high water levels in the District.
The Metropolitan Washington Air Quality Management District said the air quality in the Capital Beltway has worsened dramatically since Monday, with more than 100 people in D.C. reported to be suffering from the pollution.
On Tuesday, the Metropolitan Washington Water Quality Management Council reported that D.D.C.’s drinking water had become “very polluted” in recent days.
In response, Mayor Muriel Bowser announced a voluntary cap on water usage by residents on Wednesday.
Bowser said the city’s water supply had been “fractured,” with some areas “literally in pieces.”
