What looks like a geyser is actually water spewing from a 6 inch water line on North Street near Drew Street in Livingston.
Busted Water Pipe Prompts Quick Response, LIVINGSTON, February 20, 2015 - At around 10 am on February 20, 2015, Water was bubbling up from the pavement on Drew and North Streets when it was discovered by Officer Kaleb Barker with Livingston Police Department. Barker summoned proper authorities and City of Livingston Utilities Manager, Hec Long, arrived with a crew. The source of the leak was a six inch water line that had a hole. Long and his crew repaired the leak with a metal sleeve that has a thick rubber lining. According to Long, the water pressure is 50 lbs. per square inch. The water pressure of the line is in direct relation with the Water Tower that's located across the street from First State Bank.
The water line (a 6 inch iron pipe) only had a small hole, but that's all it takes to make a big mess.
A worker carries a metal sleeve that will be used to repair the pipe.
The repair mechanism is well built and will easily fix the problem.
