GFIELD BROKEN PIPE - 06/25/14 15:55 S.S.

A BROKEN PIPE IN GREENFIELD HAS LEAKED A LOT OF WATER SO FAR….AND IT WILL BE A WHILE BEFORE IT’S FIXED. 2 TO 300 GALLONS OF WATER HAVE BEEN LEAKING PER HOUR SINCE SUNDAY NIGHT, AND IT’S GOING TO KEEP DOING THAT UNTIL (PROBABLY) FRIDAY, BECAUSE WORKERS CAN’T DIG WHILE THEY ARE STILL AT RISK OF HITTING A UTILITY LINE. CITY OFFICIALS SAY WORKERS WILL HOPEFULLY BE ABLE TO START THE REPAIRS ON FRIDAY.
