We apologize for any inconvenience caused on the night of Saturday, September 12. Around 6:00 p.m., there was a malfunction at a connection point within the system that caused clean water to flow onto the street on Virginiatown Road, and onto some adjacent properties. This connection point is in a vault with a manhole lid. The lid was still on, but the pavement around the lid was damaged.
This leak occurred during the testing phase on the project. These sort of tests help to identify areas of the system that need further attention. This will ensure system reliability once the pipeline is up and running. The water had stopped flowing by 9:00 p.m. The pavement was patched and the roadway was cleaned up by about 10:00 p.m. The contractor will be cleaning up and repairing any damage to the roadway and private property. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience that this caused.
