Brevard County Utility Services Director said that “plans are underway to replace [a troublesome] section of pipe with something more durable” after a broken PVC pipe sent 750,000 gallons of sewage into several canals and overflow ponds. FloridaToday had the story:
“‘I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this is going to be a serious break,’ Brevard County Utility Services Director Jim Helmer told Brevard County commissioners Tuesday morning. It also is one of several such breaks to occur in a 1.1-mile stretch where 20-year-old PVC pipe was used in the sewer line. Helmer said.”
Residents in the area were asked to “restrict any activity that sent water into the drains, including flushing toilets and washing clothes” while repairs were being made.
