News Release 6:13 a.m.:
On Sept 27,2010 at approximately 2:30 A.M. Provo police dispatch received a complaint of a significant amount of water in the road at 600 W. 300 S. Provo. Officers responded and determined a water line had ruptured at this intersection. The water department was called out and was able to get the line shut off at approximately 5:00 A.M. There were several homes that were damaged by the water. An assessment of the damage is ongoing at this time. Utah Disaster Kleenup was contacted and responded to begin cleaning up the affected residences. The cause of the water line rupture is unknown at this time
Update 7:14 a.m.:
Update on the water main at 600 West 300 South. The culprit was an 8″ tee coming off the 20″ main line. The open end of the tee was plugged many years ago with a lead plug, which blew out this morning. Water is shut off from the main. Approximate area without water is 500 W to 700 W, Center to 700 South. They are equipping Franklin Elementary with portable toilets and will provide drinking water so the school can open. Repair will include cutting out the old tee and replacing that section of 20″ pipe, and will take a few hours. Red Cross is on hand and Utah Disaster Kleenup is enroute to address water damage issues in nearby apartments and homes. We will likely be putting a couple families in motels for a few days pending cleanup. The intersection of 300 S. and 500 W. is currently closed.
