North Sea Water Main Break Leaves Dozen Temporarily Without Water

Feb 19, 2015 5:23 PM

UPDATE: Thursday, 4:30 p.m.

Water service has been restored to the area.

ORIGINAL STORY

Suffolk County Water Authority crews responded to a water main break in North Sea that cut off water to 11 homes and one business on Thursday afternoon, officials said.

The water main was on North Sea Road, cutting service to properties between Millstone Brook and Noyac roads. Crews were working to repair the main on Thursday afternoon, and expected to restore service quickly, according to Tim Motz of the Suffolk County Water Authority.

According to Mr. Motz, there were additional reports of neighbors without service in North Sea, but those shortages were not believed to have been caused by the water main break and were more likely attributed to frozen pipes.

I suffered some slight faucet flatulence with some light water discoloration thereafter. I'm glad it was no worse and thank the SCWA crews for resolving the problem...In other news...Today President Obama declared February 20th 2015 as Victory Over Global Warming day. The President stated during his declaration :"In less than 7 years, my administration has been able to reverse another calamity inherited from my predecessor."...Al Gore was the only attendee at the event.

I'm sure the right will find a way to deny Obama credit for this accomplishment.

Maybe you should read up on some NCAR or UCAR studies, like the ones on climate trends over the past century.
