Newport Public Works crews were out to 9th and Eads a couple of times this week, trying to figure out just where, under many square yards of asphalt, a water leak was coming from.
Initially they wrote it off to high ground water. But then it kept getting worse. So they returned today and crews decided to check where there was the LEAST water and that was the source! Go figure.
One neighbor described it this way: “They finally did find a water leak in the main line on the other side of the street. It was a two inch crack in a plastic pipe. It’s funny that the side of the street with the smaller water leak was the side it was actually leaking from.
Today they are patching the holes and everything is good!”
