Back to normal

publisher May 7, 2019 - 10:30am

After a contractor unknowingly severed an intake line May 2, the Alexandria water plant had returned to normal operations 48 hours later.

The repair job involved a diver, municipal employees, and several contractors.

At around 9 a.m. May 2, the raw water intake pipe at Island Park was ruptured when a contractor sliced through a 14-inch pipe that brings water from Mill Pond to the treatment plant.

At no point was water quality compromised, the township stresses.

The water flow was lost to the plant, but thanks to improved storage conditions, and operational adjustments, service was not affected.
