Water Main Break, Canal Road

waterline breakc analroad
I noticed the leak yesterday afternoon while riding home on the bike path. I returned this morning after reading reports about low water pressure in the Palisades. A sizeable stream of water emerges below the historic wall at Reservoir Road and Canal Road (houses above this area are dealing with low pressure). A few words with NPS ranger and DC Dept of Environment employee suggests a water main rupture below Reservoir Road (maybe!). The water now flows into the C&O Canal and is clear. Apparently it hasn’t started to excavate. Yet.

This looks like it will be a tricky one. Get ready for the traffic snarl!
