Central Ave. Water Line Break

Photo by DPW shows Streets worker Matt Przytula and Water Maintenance Class D operator Steve Zatorski at the 12-inch high-pressure water line break on the 100-block of Central Avenue. The 80-year-old cast iron pipe cracked early Wednesday and City crews quickly closed it off from both directions and will have the stainless steel repair clamp installed soon so line can be reactivated and road surface repaired.

DPW Director Woodbury and County Health Engineer Synder communicated to coordinate the leak repair, especially to keep water flowing out as the pipe was clamped. 

Although the break spewed more than 100,000 gallons, City elevated tanks contain 4 million gallons on pressurized reserve and the filter plant has another million gallons of finished water ready to pump and keep tanks full. Additionally, the North County Water District has more than 500,000 gallons of Dunkirk water in reserve elevated storage, and the Airport Industrial Park has another 400,000 gallons of elevated tank storage.

Mayor Rosas thanks City crews for their rapid and professional response to make the repair and to bring the City water system back to full function with minimized water loss. City water is sourced from Great Lake Erie and has all background materials filtered out with granular activated carbon. The Mayor also wishes to assure our many customers that these things happen but will always be quickly addressed to not impact water quality and capacity.
