Water main breaks again, flooding Bedford Street

http://usmfreepress.org/2011/10/water-main-breaks-again... /




The water main running underneath Bedford Street has broken for the second time in less than two weeks, causing large portions of pavement to buckle and crack and sending water cascading down the street.

-snip-

USM Public Safety said they were unsure if water had been shut off in any USM buildings.

A water main break Oct. 19 in nearly the same spot left the Woodbury Campus Center, the Wishcamper Center and the Facilities Management offices without water.
----------

2 breaks, double the money spent

1. How about telling us in which state?

3. Even going to the online news websites, it's often VERY hard to figure that out. :(
I don't know why each one can't have the state showing prominently in the header somewhere.

:shrug:

5. Yep -
I always think this kind of post without basic info is extremely self-centered.

6. I don't react to the posts; it's the websites themselves that don't give the basic info...
that drives me nuts.

2. Another example of the crumbling infrastructure in
America, I guess.
