Crews working on water main break in Hagerstown

December 10, 2005|By TAMELA BAKER

City crews were working late Friday to repair a break in a 16-inch water main in the area of Jefferson Boulevard near Antietam Creek, but Chris Bordlemay, acting manager of the Hagerstown Water and Sewer Department, said he believed few of the city's customers were affected.

Though the break was in what Bordlemay called "a very, very awkward position" and heavy equipment had to be brought in for the repair, he said workers were able to provide service from another water treatment plant.

"I haven't heard of any calls or complaints," Bordlemay said.

By 9 p.m., the leak had been isolated, but Bordlemay estimated workers would remain for another four hours to complete repairs.

Bordlemay said some customers in the area might notice discolored water.

"You're stirring up sediment anytime you have a break like this," he said.

Bordlemay apologized for any inconvenience to the city's water customers.
