Water flowing again after overnight main break on Amsterdam's South Side

Water flowing again after overnight main break on Amsterdam's South Side

Water is again flowing into homes and a school on Amsterdam's South Side following repairs to a wate

Water is again flowing into homes and a school on Amsterdam's South Side following repairs to a water main break that took place overnight, according to Mayor Ann Thane.

A 12-inch water line burst Tuesday night, cutting off water to the William H. Barkley MicroSociety Magnet School and several residences, Thane said in a release via e-mail.

The city's Water Department went to the scene and realized a fix required excavation, so City Engineer Richard Miller called in contractor TKC.

The pipe sustained a 10 foot-long crack and had to be cut out and replaced, and the work was completed this morning.

"This action took all night in weather that boasted a wind chill of -13 degrees. Thank you [DPW manager] Ray Halgas, Richard Miller and TKC for their prompt response to this critical need," Thane said in the release.
