A two to -three-inch diameter hole in a 10-inch pipe caused the geyser, which continued for more than eight hours.
BIRMINGHAM, Alabama – Crews from the Birmingham Water Works labored through the early afternoon to plug a hole in a water main that created a geyser in the Roosevelt City neighborhood for more than eight hours today.
A neighborhood resident called police, reporting the sound of an explosion, at about 6 a.m., a police officer on the scene said. Water Works personnel were on the scene in Roosevelt City Park by 9 a.m. and brought in heavy equipment at about 1:30. A police officer estimated the height of the column of water at as much as 80 feet.
The cause of the break in the water main was not clear, though a Birmingham police officer at the scene said there was no indication that anyone had been digging at the site.
The crew’s first attempt to place a metal clamp over the hole in the 10-inch pipe failed when the water, under high pressure, blew out a rubber lining on the clamp. Workers said the hole in the pipe was between two and three inches in diameter.
A second attempt to put a wrap-around clamp over the hole in the pipe succeeded at about 2:40 p.m.
Water Works employees referred questions to an agency spokeswoman. Efforts to reach the spokeswoman were not immediately successful.
In the hours that the leak continued children gathered in the park played in the temporary creek that carried the water to the park’s football practice field. Football players and other children gathered downwind of the geyser to cool off.
