Portion of West Ninth Street closed for waterline break

July 15, 2010


A portion of Ninth Street will be closed Thursday while crews repair a water main.

West Ninth Street from Wellington Road to Lawrence Avenue will be closed to through traffic for most of the day, City Hall Communications Manager Megan Gilliland said.

The closure is necessary because the portion of the main that is broken is directly underneath the street. Four homes in the area are without water service while the repairs take place today.

Perhaps if the Water Department did not have $8.1M of its funds "swept" into other City departments, the money could have been utilized for waterline maintenance, thus avoiding the break. Right, Mr. Corliss?

No matter how much was "swept" away there is still enough to pay six workers to stand around the hole and look inside of it. Every so often one or two workers will do some actual work while the other four watch.
