Cosi's No Apology Viral Email With 17 Health Violations

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WUSA9) - Rodents and other health violations at Cosi's Metro Center location exploded into a PR problem beyond sanitation when the regional manager issued a statement calling a WUSA9 inquiry "unwarranted" and asking us not to look under their tables because it created "a great deal of distress."

A part-owner of Cosi intervened as the controvery escalated and issued an apology.

DC Health inspectors ordered an emergency closure at the Cosi Metro Center store citing rodents, rodent droppings, chicken and other foods at potentially sickening temperatures, improper tracking of employee diseases transmittable through food, and sinks too small to clean Cosi's large utensils, trays, and bowls.

Water Main Break In NW DC Fixed after Flooding

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Crews worked feverishly overnight to repair a 20-inch water main that burst early Saturday morning.

Crews had to drill down to the gushing pipe that took several hours to shutdown on 17th and Rhode Island Avenue Northwest.

When they peeled back the road they found the pipe with a 5-6 foot hole.

George Hawkins, DC Water General Manager, "we haven't had many problems on this road and we wouldn't have expected it. But there's a large excavation directly adjacent to it."
They're looking at what caused the century old pipe -- installed in 1897 -- to break. DC Water General Manager George Hawkins says they haven't ruled out anything including, the pipe's age and nearby construction work.

This is also the same site where a construction worker had to be rescued, a week and a half ago.

Rescue crews carefully lifted him up from where he fell near blasting cords 50 feet down.
