A water main break in Clarksburg headed towards the Damascus area has created a sinkhole that has closed Ridge Road.
The 24” water main on Ridge Rd is Damascus’ primary domestic water source so low water pressure or outages may occur in the area. WSSC is on scene, according to Montgomery County Fire and Rescue.
