UPDATE (3:15 p.m.)—In response to thousands still without power, cooling centers in Anne Arundel County will remain open on Monday.
On Monday afternoon, Baltimore Gas and Electric (BGE) still showed more than 40,000 outages in Anne Arundel County on the online outage map. Progress, while seemingly slow to customers without power, is being made with more than 96,000 customers' power restored since Friday.
County Executive John R. Leopold lifted restrictions on water use throughout the county, except for Herald Harbor in Crownsville.
“Our priority now is to ensure that our most vulnerable citizens have options to stay cool and hydrated while power is restored,” County Executive Leopold said in a prepared statement. “Temperatures this week will remain high, and we are urging everyone to use caution in this hot weather.”
The county released the following information on Monday morning:
- The Department of Public Works is currently managing 178 service requests.
- All major intersections are clear. Due to downed power lines, 23 roads remain closed and 18 are partially blocked.
- Water treatment plants and approximately 65 pumping stations are operating on generator power, but residents who are not in the Herald Harbor service area can start using public water for laundry and outdoor needs.
- The Broad Creek Water Treatment Plant, located at 165 Truman Parkway in Annapolis, is open until 5 p.m. for residents to bring their own water containers to be filled.
