I wandered over for a look.
The 14" main had been leaking for a while. A service truck, parking by the curb, broke through and got stuck. Then the water really started gushing. By the time I got there the stuck truck had been pulled out. Public Works had shut off some valves and was pumping out water prior to repairing the pipe.
Pumping out the water.
Sending the water across Oak Street to the storm drains.
It looks like the city worker are about to be "busted"!!
This morning, the day after, the leak has been repaired and a temporary cover placed over the hole.
Shit, I hope our main line never goes. I suspect we also have just the one.ReplyDelete
