Water Pipe Impact

Source: Great American Environmental Division, May 2013
During excavation of a trench for the installation of an underground pipe, the excavation contractor struck a 3-inch water line, resulting in the release of 30,000 gallons of water. The water ran to a storm drain and eventually to a local creek, causing increased turbidity, pH and chlorine levels. The event was reportable to the local environmental agency and may result in monitoring, clean-up costs and fines.
