VALLEY VIEW – A 6” water main break that occurred in the wee hours of the morning Sunday, July 3, had the Hegins-Hubley Water Authority scurrying to come up with an emergency plan during their meeting Monday afternoon at the authority building on Maple Street.
According to Demetrius Kasmari, manager of the authority, a 6’ section of the pipe cracked causing a major leak on West Maple Street in Valley View.
One resident described the break as a geyser of water just shooting up from the ground. She said she was alerted to the break when she awoke to use the bathroom in her Maple Street home.
