Mini-geyser near Wellington

A backhoe stands by beside an erupting water main as a PRWID crew further north on Highway 6 turn off the valve.

A backhoe stands by beside an erupting water main as a PRWID crew further north on Highway 6 turn off the valve. The pipe, which is only about 10 to 12 years old, broke Thursday afternoon. PRWID general manager Jeff Richens explained that the break was apparently caused by the ground shifting as temperatures change with the seasons. Service was interrupted to about six homes until the evening.
