Ever wonder what it looks like when a water main ruptures? A really, really big water main?
People in northeast Tarrant County have been dealing with a situation like that off Beach Street this week, after a 54-inch main ruptured – causing big water problems from Richland Hills to Saginaw.
And now, thanks to a similar situation in Europe, we have an idea of just what happens when a big water main fails. Closed-circuit cameras caught it all in Ukraine, and it looks a lot like Mt. St. Helens going off.
That’s going to take a while to clean up.
