Water main breaks, effect wasn't known

Friday, September 17, 2004

Terry Evitts, a plumber for the Brazil City Water Works Department, places cones around a water leak on the south side of US 40 in Front of Forest Park Plaza.

Assistant Water Distribution supervisor Dick Vanatti said, from the way the water was coming out, he hopes the problem is just a crack which could be repaired rather easily and quickly. But he can't tell for sure until they dig and expose the six inch cast-iron line which goes from Vandalia to Belle Street.

The Brazil City crew and equipment were in place about 8:20 a.m. but they had to wait for the line locators to arrive to determine where the other utility lines are placed.

Vanatti said the repairs should be completed today and he did not expect any disruption of water service to any Brazil customers.
