A local Rotarian forwarded this picture of an overstressed water main at Buchan Dr. and Roderick Ct. in Lafayette just as the day’s rainfall subsided Tuesday.
“EBMUD on the scene already,” he wrote. “(They) say water service will be restored in (about) 6 hours…”
WC Rotarian Guy says today’s gusher is the second at this location in six months, due to aging water lines past their due date for failure.
“Nothing new to that,” Rotary Man writes. “Our Rotary club is going to have to start water projects here in the US at some point in the near future at this rate…”
We wouldn’t put it past them. Those Rotarians move mountains when they put their backs to it.
