Water Main Ruptures Again
By Charles Betzler
A 12-inch main water line on South Main St. that previously ruptured earlier in the week due to a faulty altitude valve, ruptured again early Sunday afternoon. Utility Foreman David Norris told the Sapulpa Times that a section of the line just north of the previous repair split open. Utility workers are currently in the process of cutting out the damaged segment of the line and clamping a new length of line in place. Crews utilized the sewage vacuum truck to avoid pumping water onto the street. No time of completion was given, however, it is hoped water service will be restored by this evening. Norris said utility employees stayed up 52 hours straight working on the last water line damage.
