While crews with the City of Bend were preparing for construction work on the Surface Water Project pipeline, they encountered a crack in an 80 year old water pipe in the city's intake facility near Tumalo Falls Road.

 

According to Bend Communications Director Justin Finestone, on October fourth they had shut down the water line for inspection of certain sections, and workers noticed a hole in a forest service road the pipeline travels under.

 

They excavated the site and found about a six-foot crack in a welded seam.

 

A welder was called in to make the necessary repairs.  The cost is not expected to exceed $2000.
