BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) — Bay City crews are expected work over the course of several months on repairs at the site of a water main break that drained up to 20 million gallons of water.
The Bay City Times reports (http://bit.ly/1AggcOQ ) crews worked Wednesday on one water main and discussed plans to repair the break in another main that prompted water-use restrictions for days after officials became aware of the problem Saturday.
After reviewing blueprints, officials determined an 8-inch water main broke. Officials earlier said it was a 24-inch main. The water made its way into an abandoned, 36-inch storm drain that discharges into the Saginaw River.
Detailed plans for a fix are pending. Water from Bay City serves the city of 35,000 and much of the surrounding county.
