A water pipe leak along Rt. 924 in Bel Air caused flooding of the north bound lane of Rt. 924 and caused several businesses to lose water Friday. At 8:00 a.m. the northbound lane was under several inches of water. Pipes poured water onto the road all along the Country Village Apartments complex off and on throughout the day.
Two backhoes, a dump truck, about 8 other vehicles, and around two dozen people were deployed by TMC, a company that contracts with the town, just south of East McPhail and at the main entrance to the apartment complex. At 3:00 p.m. a fire hydrant in between the two locations was still gushing water with all valves open.
Public water was lost at several offices along the route of the pipeline beginning around 1:00 p.m. Work was still ongoing at 4 p.m. with no word of when the pipe will be repaired, or water access will be restored, released by the Town of Bel Air.
