December 2012 Mapleton Drive Water Main Break Photos
This leak occured on Thursday, December 6, 2012 located in the Robinwood area. Clean up will continue on Friday, December 7th.
Jim Whynot, Water Operations Supervisor: "The leak was on a galvanized service connected to an asbestos cement water main. It was common practice to use galvanized pipe for services laterals on asbestos cement. Inspection of the pipe after we pulled it out showed several holes. It was in such bad shape that when we were digging up the service at the main to shut it off, it broke resulting in having to shut down the main effecting 12 homes. We will be finishing up today with the cleanup."
