BALTIMORE (AP) — A Maryland juvenile detention facility left without water service for days has had it restored.
State Juvenile Services department Chief of Staff Jay Cleary tells The Baltimore Sun that full service was restored Wednesday evening at Charles H. Hickey Jr. School, which houses 58. Cleary says an off-site water line issue started Sunday.
Stephen Bergman, acting director of the state Juvenile Protection Division, says conditions seemed generally to be improving.
Mary Siegfried with the Montgomery County public defender’s office said the boys went without showers, and their bathroom use was monitored. Cleary said the department provided drinking water, and water to flush toilets and brush teeth. He said a water truck provided showers Tuesday.
