water woes today

Bing

A 6 inch, 100 year old water main burst at Chestnut St & Jady Hill Ave . The break occurred/ was discovered last Friday. The repair is being hampered right now by  pent up water in the copse of trees  beside the break. That water is supposed to drain through a culvert, which is collapsed. That backed  up swamp is  now flowing into the pit where the break is located. So, it’s a water main break and a collapsed culvert job today. In an area with approx 250 homes there are only 3 valves to isolate  a problem.
