BREAKING: Gas, water lines broken. Avoid Jackson/Cass intersection in Brazil

Thursday, October 1, 2009

Gas and water service lines have been broken near the intersection of Jackson and Cass streets in Brazil.

Brazil Water Superintendent Jake Raubach said a location for a new meter pit was marked incorrectly and a one-inch gas line and a water service line were broken during digging for the installation.

Raubach confirmed Vectren Energy was on the scene to replace the gas line and no risk of danger was imminent. He added water services in Brazil would not be turned off nor would a boil order be necessary.

Drivers are requested to adjust their routes accordingly until approximately 7 p.m., this evening when all repairs are anticipated to be completed.

I feel sorry for the residents of Brazil as they never know if they're going to have water or utilities when they wake up or come home from work.........and NOT BECAUSE THEY DON'T PAY THEIR BILLS! How sad that Brazil has had to deal with these problems - namely the WATER issues - for MANY MANY YEARS.
