OXON HILL, Md. (WUSA9) -- Many restaurants at the National Harbor will be opening back up Wednesday night after WSSC announced it will not shut-off the water supply. 

The remaining business are expected to be fully operational by Thursday. The National Children's Museum will resume regular operating hours on Friday, July 19.

The harbor was shut-down on Tuesday after WSSC and Prince George's County officials warned that water was going to be shut-off due to a failing 54-inch pipline that needed to be replaced. 

Statement from Kent Digby, senior vice president and director of operations for National Harbor:

"We're pleased that WSSC officials were able to find a way to work around a complete water shut-off to the residents, retail shops, restaurants, businesses and hotels of National Harbor. We are now working as quickly as we can to ramp back up our activities. A number of National Harbor restaurants plan to be open for dinner tonight, and we expect National Harbor to be back at full-speed with our retail shops, restaurants and other activities by Thursday."
