BEND, OR -- That 12-inch water main break Wednesday morning in Bend was repaired and streets nearby were reopened yesterday afternoon. The break closed Northeast 1st and 2nd and Olney Avenue. The Field Operations Manager for the Public Works Department, Troy Beck, says the 45-to-50 year-old pipe was placed on rock when it was installed. He says over time the rock acts like a fulcrum and the pipe become fatigued and fails. Beck says the estimated the loss of water from the break was between 500 thousand to 750-thousand gallons of water.
