Is the swamp literally being drained right now?
There was a water main break in downtown DC earlier today with water reportedly starting to seep into some nearby buildings. A 12-inch pipe from the 1940s broke around the 1200 block of Connecticut Ave. DC Water crews were able to respond quickly and shut off the supply. All southbound lanes of Connecticut Avenue were blocked, as were M Street and and 18th Street, Northwest.
