It covers the following two areas: Between Northwest 34th to 41st streets and 107th Avenue to 136th Place Between Northwest 41st to 42nd streets and 107th to 109th avenues Here’s a closer look at the work being done on the water main break in Doral.
As of 8 p.m., Miami-Dade Water and Sewer personnel were on the scene, working to identify the affected water pipe.
“We believe it’s a 24-inch main, which is actually rather significant,” said Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Director Kevin Lynskey.
“I really want to go home.
It’s been a long day,” said Danielle Godreau.
“When construction happens, we go out in advance and attempt to mark all the areas where there are pipes,” said Lynskey, “So it’s yet to be known whether to understand if there was blame involved.” Copyright 2018 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved.
