Wednesday Headlines: Water Main Break Closes Street Near Verizon Center

Repairs to an 8-inch water main are underway near the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C.  Authorities shut down 7th Street between G and H streets after a bus slid sideways down the ice-covered street this morning.

Public works crews in Springfield, Missouri replaced a broken water main blamed for creating a void underneath the street and filled the 10-feet by 10-feet hole overnight. The break disrupted the flow of water to parts of one neighborhood.

A Maryland state delegate yesterday called on Anne Arundel County officials to spend money allocated for bay restoration on upgrading sewer pumping stations along two heavily polluted creeks.

In San Diego, a sewage spill that made its way to the Pacific Ocean and a surfing Park has prompted health officials to put up warning signs Tuesday. The overflow of wastewater was caused by blocked sanitation line.

A work crew is on the scene of the latest water main break in Wormleysburg, Pennsylvania. The leak buckled pavement in several places. This is the latest in what some have called a rash of water main breaks in the area.

A midday water main break yesterday in Natick, Massachusetts left residents and businesses along a nearly one mile-long stretch without water for up to 10 hours yesterday.
