Residents Capture Video of Plymouth Water Main Break
Around 5 p.m. Sunday, a water main broke at the intersection of Old Rockford Road and Holly Lane N. in Plymouth. Some neighbors took video and pictures and posted them to Preserve Hollydale Facebook page.
The city says the break happened on Holly Lane, just north of Old Rockford Road on Sunday evening. Crews repaired the break Sunday evening through early Monday morning. The 16 inch ductile iron pipe was installed between 1990-1992.
“As you can see in this photo, there was a weak spot in the pipe that caused a small hole to occur,” said public works director Michael Thompson. “Typically these are caused by corrosive soils/conductivity or pressure changes in the pipe from other breaks in the area or seasonal temperature changes for example.”
