US regulators: No water pipes to be broken
A US regulator has told regulators to look into a leak at a US pipeline that is causing widespread water contamination.
The San Bruno water main breaks on May 25, 2018.
The San Bruno city of about 100,000 people is suffering from the water shortage as the US Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security investigate the cause.
San Bruno’s city manager, Gregorio M. Rivera, said in a statement that the pipe had broken in the past and that the water had leaked into the street and into homes.
A report is pending from the US Environmental Protection Agency, the San Francisco Department of Water and Power and the US Geological Survey, the mayor’s office said.
“The city is taking this matter very seriously,” the statement said.
We have installed a water main replacement system to minimize the likelihood of a leak occurring again.” “
If we need to install a pipe replacement or repair it, we will do so.
We have installed a water main replacement system to minimize the likelihood of a leak occurring again.”
The city and the EPA did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Monday.
The city has not issued any water advisories or water restrictions in the wake of the leaks. Reuters
