      Another water main leak in Chevy Chase

      A water main that{ }leaked Tuesday is connected to the major water main that broke last week.

      WSSC discovered a leak in a portion of a 54 inch transmission main in a wooded area near the 32-hundred block of Coquelin Terrace in Chevy Chase after a resident reported seeing water on the ground Monday afternoon.

      A portion of the leak was isolated and shut down Monday night. Water is being drained from the pipe and an emergency contractor will begin repairs as soon as possible.

      No customers are without water, and there is no need for any water use restrictions.

      This pipe is connected to the 60" main that failed last Monday night near Connecticut Ave. and Chevy Chase Lake Drive.
