Line break causes Dayton water outage

July 23, 2013


DAYTON – A water line cut by CenturyLink-contracted workers is believed to have caused a disruption in water service for at least some Dayton residents last week, a city official said.

Richard Reeder, who works for the City of Dayton, said the break occurred related to the phone company’s installation of a new fiber optic line in the community.

“They hit one of our main (water) lines,” he said. “That’s why some people had low water pressure or had it shut off until the pipe got repaired.”


As a part of the repair effort the firm hired by CenturyLink found it was necessary to shut off water to a part of the city, Reeder said.

For some water users, service was restored sometime that afternoon.

But for others, it was about 10 p.m. and for still other users, they didn’t have water restored until just before 6 a.m. the next day.

“The people that hit it (ruptured the line) had to fix it,” Reeder said. “They put in a good effort, stayed until it was done,” he said of the firm contracted by CenturyLink to do the work.

“By Tuesday morning (July 16) everything was pretty much back to normal,” he said.

“They (company) are still digging and boring, doing stuff around the city. But there have been no other problems”

In the meantime, he said trenching work was completed at least half-way to Preston.
