Water hauled to prison after pipe breaks

September 12, 2011

Firetrucks were used to haul water to the Maryland Correctional Training Center south of Hagerstown Monday after a water main broke, according to Dave Fraley, chief of the Funkstown Volunteer Fire Co.

Fraley said Monday night he did not know what caused the water line to rupture and said it is not expected to be repaired until Tuesday. Leonard Heller Jr., chief of the Fairplay Volunteer Fire Co., said the water main break might have been caused by some construction at the complex.

Firetrucks have been hauling water to three holding tanks so toilets can be operated at MCTC, which is the only facility affected by the rupture, Heller said.

Two tractor-trailers were used to haul drinking water to MCTC for inmates and workers there, Heller said.

Fire companies from Funkstown, Fairplay, Halfway and Williamsport started hauling water to MCTC about noon Monday, Heller said.

MCTC officials realized they were out of water at about 8 a.m. Monday, Heller said.
