Water Main Ruptures, Creates Mud Flow into Neighborhood

advertisement

A water main break in Greenbelt, Md., created a big mess for the surrounding area.

About 4:30 a.m., a 24-inch pipe ruptured in the 100 block of Greenbelt Road. Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission crews have been trying to make repairs.

News4 Derrick Ward reported a mud flow from the break reached about a block and a half back into the neighborhood. He said temperatures are just above freezing and the water is not creating an ice problem.

One lane on Greenbelt Road is closed as the crews work. At 11 a.m., WSSC reported they were charging the line -- putting water back in the pipes -- and expected repairs to be finished in the next 20 minutes.
