Main Street water line breaks, seepage reported in businesses
February 25, 2014
The Park City Water Department on Sunday repaired a broken water line along Main Street.
Clint McAffee, the water manager, says the water line corroded over the years, creating a hole measuring approximately .25 inch in diameter. The crew also found a loose fitting attached to the line, he says.
The workers installed a new section of line measuring approximately four feet in length.
The Water Department received a report of the broken line Saturday night. It took upward of seven hours on Sunday to complete the repair, McAffee says.
He says water seeped into three nearby businesses from their buildings’ foundation. The Water Department, though, did not receive reports of property damage as a result of the break, he says.
Water service was interrupted to one nearby business while the repair was underway, but the business was not open at the time, McAffee says.
