Water Main Break on Reservoir Rd 2/2/19

 The District experienced a water main break on Reservoir Rd that was initially indicated by usage reports on Saturday, February 2, 2019, during rounds. The break was located on Sunday and repair efforts ensued for the following 18 hours. The 1950’s cast iron water main was completely separated and was determined to be 12’ under the surface of the road. Andrews Construction was enlisted to assist and the break was repaired and the lines re-pressurized on the evening of the 4th. District operators worked to release air in the lines over the next few days to eliminate the cloudy appearance of the water. District officials strive to minimize these occurrences and are grateful of the support and patience of the users.
