Bureau of Utilities - Water Main Breaks
Among our responsibilities that lead to a stable, quality water system for Howard County, the timely repair of water main breaks is a priority.

In 2013, the Bureau of Utilities repaired 160 water main breaks. We sincerely appreciate your patience when such inconveniences arise in your area.

If you notice water coming up out of a road, curb and gutter, or other area, please avoid the location as the water may have caused unsafe undermining of the surface. Call us at 410-313-4900 to report the situation and we will respond immediately.
