How Do I Restore Water Flow To My Faucets?

All at once, water stopped flowing through any of the indoor faucets, the toilets won't fill and no water is flowing to the laundry room. However, we are getting water through the kitchen faucet. I'm puzzled.

When facing water pressure problems that result in low or no water flow, look to the simplest solution first. Often when this happens, the strainers in the faucets have to be removed and cleared and the top of the fill valve in the toilet should be removed, flushed and replaced. Cities will sometimes flush their systems, which breaks loose debris and sends it to homes along the piping route. When this happens the pipes distribute the debris to every faucet and valve, plugging them up.
