Water main break in city is repaired

June 17, 2005|by BRIAN SHAPPELL

Employees with the City of Hagerstown's Water and Sewer Department worked for several hours Thursday to repair a water main break at the intersection of Jefferson and Pangborn boulevards, the department's director said.

David Shindle, the city's water and sewer manager, said the water main was repaired by 9 p.m. and that "only a handful" of people experienced periods without service.

Shindle said the breakage was caused by an old tapping sleeve on the westbound shoulder of Jefferson Boulevard that cracked Thursday afternoon.

Shindle said water still was being restored late Thursday.

The roads were not closed to traffic at any time as a result of the incident, Shindle said.
