SOUTH EUCLID, Ohio - Water gushing from a broken 12 -inch pipe in South Euclid has been contained. The water main break happened Friday around 2 p.m. and shut down Trebisky Road at Anderson.
One resident said she saw the water rise as high as six feet in the air.
Yards looked like swimming pools and people said they saw garbage cans floating in the water. “I was walking the dog around the corner and heard a loud noise,” said Natalie Bauman. “It was coming up like a geyser and just flooding the street,” she continued.
The Cleveland Water Department said they didn’t know exactly what type of damage they would find once they get down under the 42-inch water main that runs in the area. Kim Thompson, who works for the water department said, “The 12 inch water main which is connected to the 42 is called a supplemental main. That portion of the main cracked or broke.”
Thompson said crews expected to work late Friday night and will be back out on Saturday to help the area with cleaning things up.
No boil alerts have been issued at this time.
